Modern civil design can't hold a candle to that neat and tidy 3rd Century BC layout. Sometimes older is better.
How far we've fallen...
I'm still pissed about the 3rd Punic War. Don't get me started about Cato the Elder.
Well that's just fucking awesome! I had no idea they had drones in 300BC!
Ok then. Well, get a load of the Antikythera mechanism, dated from around the fall of Carthage (150 BC).

Wow, so much rising sea level, I wonder where the coffer dam is that holds all that excess water is?
They moved a lot of dirt/rocks (fill) around over the years. Looks about what they have done in the San Fran Bay. Maybe half the water surface since they started screwing with the SF Bay.Wonder how long it took to get the Carthage port reduced to the size it currently is?
Before the gold rush, and the ensuing hydraulic mining in the Sierras, South SF Bay was a hell of a lot deeper, and the extreme ass end of the bay was a deep water port.
