Recent geoarcheological researches based on a multidisciplinary approach allow us to hypothesize the position of the Roman Age shoreline in the sector between the Volturno River mouth and the M. Massico relief (Campania region). The collected data highlight a Late Holocene different morpho-evoutive trend for the Mondragone coastal sector, where the Roman colony of Sinuessa was located, respect to that of the Volturno river mouth where the shoreline during the Roman Age was much more inland than nowadays. Today the shoreline position is due to several progradation phases occurred since 2.0 ky B.P.; on the contrary the Mondragone coastal counterpart did not register these progradation phases and nowadays the shoreline position is more or less close to the Roman Age shoreline. In particular, the archaeo-stratigraphic data from the Sinuessa archeosite (walls, roads, maritime villas) allow to locate the Roman Age shoreline at ca. 200 m offshore respect to the actual one.
