Lost Underwater Egyptian City

"Franck Goddio and his team from IEASM with the help of the Egypstian Supreme Council of Antiquities, have unearthed an incredible find, the Lost Egyptian City of Thonis-Heracleion. Located in around 15 kilometres area of the western part of Akoudir Bay, Franck has found important ancient landmarks of Thonis-Heracleion, such as the grand temple of Amun and his son Khonsou and the harbours once controlling the daily trade, all buried under 30 feet of the surface of the Mediterranean Sea.

Known as Heracleion to the ancient Greeks and Thonis to the ancient Egyptians, it is a city swallowed by the Mediterranean Sea and buried in sand and mud for more than 1,200 years.”
