Italian scientists have discovered medicine that is more than 2000 years old. The goo, a lump of hardened eye ointment, was found years ago in a wrecked ship.
Researchers from the University of Pisa say the ophthalmological medicine included zinc, starch, resin, and plant remains.
The medicine was found in the remains of a ship which about 130 years before Christ sank off the coast of Tuscany. Probably it came from Cyprus or Syria. In 1974 the wreck was discovered. In the 1980s and 90s divers already took vases and lamps from the wreck.
