Lost Egyptian City Discovered Beneath The Sea After 1,200 Years

Lost Egyptian City Discovered Beneath The Sea After 1,200 Years

If we told you a story of an ancient city, some 1,200 years old, that has been devoured by the foreboding Mediterranean Sea and entombed under a tons of mud, rock and sand – you’d be forgiven for thinking it was the opening passage to a Disney fairytale.
But this is one story that isn’t fantasy, in fact you could say it truly is the stuff of dreams.
Originally called ‘Heracleion’ by the Greeks but named ‘Thonis’ by the ancient Egyptians, the existence of the mythical city was confirmed to be true when in 2000, Dr. Frank Goddio (an underwater archaeologist) made one of the most important discoveries of the 21st century.
