Around the year 2000, the underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio found the remains of an “Egyptian Atlantis” on the legendary Nile River depth. Are the cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, submerged for over a thousand years in the Mediterranean.
According to experts, found objects will change our understanding of the Greek and Egyptian stories. More than 200 well-preserved items, among which is a statue of granite five and a half meters high, corresponding to the Egyptian god Hapi, and a statue of the Greek goddess Isis, dated 1,200 years old.
However, the archaeologist believes that, to date, were discovered only 5% of the objects buried under the river. “Submerged cities are so great that make Pompeii seem small,” Goddio said.
