"Cannonballs from culverins – primitive early medieval cannons – most probably used in 1461 during the conquest of the Zishtova Fortress by Wallacian Voivode Vlad III Dracula, also known as Vlad the Impaler, from the Ottoman Turks have been discovered during excavations in Bulgaria’s Danube town of Svishtov.

"Another intriguing find from the excavations of the ruins of the Zishtova Fortress is a partially preserved inscription mentioning one of the cohorts of the Roman Empire’s First Italian Legion (Legio I Italica), which was quartered at Novae – a major Ancient Roman military camp and city right outside of today’s town of Svishtov from the 1st century AD until the 4th century AD."

I think I can safely say, this is the first Ball thread to not mention Hitler.

Great. Now everyone is going to say "by Dracula's balls!". I'll have to come up with a new exclamation of my incredulity.
