Too bad the seals on the amphoras didn't hold. Twenty centuries would  
result in a well-aged fish sauce. :-)

The article does mention fish bones inside these amphoras. I thought  
the Roman fish sauce was sans bones. Were these later strained out?  
Or did the bones usually get dissolved in the fish sauce? If the  
latter, then why were these bones still there? Perhaps the fish sauce  
was aged on the way to Rome instead of being aged first, and the  
bones dissolved or removed, and then shipped to Rome.
