The Ancient Egyptian Lost City of Heracleion Was Found Underwater and Investigated After 1,200 Years


Perhaps, you aren’t a conspiracy theorist, but I’m pretty sure your awareness of the story of the lost city of Atlantis by now. The story of the lost city of Atlantis has become iconic at present.

But in fact, the lost city of Atlantis seems to be one of the known lost cities in the world which the general public is aware of. However, it’s our responsibility to pay attention to the incidents which take place over the world and to share them in order to educate the masses around the entire world.

Another one among the lost cities is the legendary Heracleion.

This is an ancient Egyptian city which was discovered near the Canopic Mouth of the river Nile and it’s around 20 miles northeast of Alexandria. The lost city of Heracleion is actually one of the most attractive ancient cities which are discovered so far.

It seems as if everyone inside the Heracleion city had everything and this reveals the city as one of the richest ones in the past.

The folk tales of Egypt had revealed the story about the sunken city. However, none of the ancient Egyptians have ever believed the city to re-emerge with the time.

Herodotus was the first to mention the lost city of Heracleion around 1500 years ago. He was a historian from the 5th century BC. Herosdotus wrote about the city, mentioning Helen of Troy along with her lover Paris.

They would have run together, holding hands of each other along the city of Heracleion as it was such an amazing place. They would have spent all their days as little love birds there.

Frank Goddio along with his group of archeologists discovered the ancient lost city of Heracleion in 2001 for the first time.

The rediscovery of the city was an accidental incident for them as they were engaged in their mission to search for Napoleon’s warships from the 1798 Battle of the river Nile.
