Terminology of Roman Anchors

This is a diagram of a Roman Anchor

In the Castillian text, the "cepo" is the stock and the "suncho" is a typographical error. It should be "zuncho" which is the collar of the anchor. (threw me for a while!!)

I downloaded two PDF descriptions of Roman Anchors which fit this well by Googling: ancla romano zuncho

Just a thought - should it be sub-aquatic archaeology?
