Ne librin e Pliny the Elder, The Natural History 3.16 , autori jep nje fakt shume interesant, per distancen midis Otrantos dhe Apollonise. Pirroja u mundua te ndertonte nje ure qe bashkonte dy brigjet, rreth 50 milje te gjate.

ab eo Basta oppidum et Hydruntum decem ac novem milia passuum, ad discrimen Ionii et Hadriatici maris, qua in Graeciam brevissimus transitus, ex adverso Apolloniatum oppidi latitudine intercurrentis freti L non amplius. hoc intervallum pedestri continuare transitu pontibus iactis primum Pyrrus Epiri rex cogitavit, post eum M. Varro, cum classibus Pompei piratico bello praeesset;Hydruntum, the spot at which the Ionian is separated from the Adriatic sea, and from which the distance across to Greece is the shortest. The town of the Apolloniates lies opposite to it, and the breadth of the arm of the sea which runs between is not more than fifty miles. Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, was the first who entertained the notion of uniting these two points and making a passage on foot, by throwing a bridge across, and after him M. Varro,when commanding the fleet of Pompey in the war against the Pirates.
A nuk eshte kjo veper ca si shume per "primitivet" qe luftonin vetem me shpata?
