Except for the part about the Archeology catching up to the liars.

It sounds all good and fun in fiction form but the reality of it is, this was a major archeological find that didn't get huge amounts of attention and for what reason?

Who knows?


Probably they wanted to keep quiet about the find until they had retrieved all the artifacts and not lost them to salvaged and tourist diving companies.

With a find like that they would end up with diving boats floating above the ruins and dropping their anchors on top of the statues, smashing them and everything else.

I wonder if there is a mystical connection here. One of my favorite albums by Dada has a song called "Sick in Santorini". The eruption of Santorini caused an devastating tsunami the same millenia Heracleion disappeared.

"Sick" is slang for mentally ill.



The ancient name for Santorini is "Thira". Thira in Greek means "untamed" which sort of parallels with "sick".

What is predictable? That you would call yourself an idiot, or that 3 years later someone else would come across something and question the veracity? Feel free to include a snippet from your original OP if you so desire.

Not sure what your song has to do with it, but you could be on to something, did that happen 1200 years ago

Why obviously? They couldn't have been damaged in the destruction of said city?

Well, WOW!

Just goes to show you there is not enough money being pumped into discovery our very own history. I guess those in power do not wish us to see how beautiful human history is. There will be thousands of these kinds of discoveries still to be found relating to sea and jungles of our world.

What a beautiful find however, such grand scale. Would be very cool to find something that may refer to something our modern history does not know.

I thought I recognised those photos from somewhere...I work just near the British Museum in London, and some of those photos have been up on massive posters advertising their major exhibition:

Sunken cities Egypt’s lost worlds




Preserved and buried under the sea for over a thousand years, the stunning objects in the exhibition range from magnificent colossal statues to intricate gold jewellery. Sacred offerings and ritual objects reveal the cult of Osiris – the god of the underworld who held the promise of eternal life. They tell stories of political power and popular belief, myth and migration, gods and kings. Journey through centuries of encounters between two celebrated cultures, meeting iconic historical figures such as Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, Hadrian and Antinous on the way.

Over the last 20 years, world-renowned archaeologist Franck Goddio and his team have excavated spectacular underwater discoveries using the latest technologies. They will be seen alongside fascinating objects from major Egyptian museums for the first time in the UK.

Discover the incredible story of the remarkable relationship between the major ancient civilisations of Egypt and Greece, unveiled in this monumental new exhibition.


I'm planning to go in a few weeks, hopefully it will be as good as the reviews make out.

Didn't Napoleon have a fascination with Egypt?

Yah he did but didn't occupy it like the Greeks or Romans.



Actually he did.

There you go. They tried to 'deface' the history.

These are all jumbled about on the bottom, not part of a ruin. They were carried there by boat and dumped.

Who does that?

Acthe did.

For two years. Like I said not like Greeks or Romans.

So who dumped the statues in the Mediterranean?

Nature did. Earthquakes and liquefaction.

That is one theory for the light house for instance. Bit the other is more prevalent: They found dozens of sphinxes and obelisks for instance wth inscriptions, jumbled about on the bottom. They were not part of ruins, they had purposely been dumped there.

The eastern Med is home to a subduction zone. When you combine that with cities built on coastal sand, the shallow depth of the ruins and then several tsunamis (over the time frame involved) then you have the potential for a huge amount of "jumbling" of any artifacts.

Goddio himself says that Thonis-Heraclion is huge - up to 3 times the size of Pompei. What they have excavated is a tiny tiny part of this. The bit he first discovered was at a depth of 20ft but he has discovered that most ruins are under around 30ft of silt deposits.

Goddio is a hugely experienced underwater archeologist. In the Phillipines alone he has been involved in the discoveries of over 13 wrecks so he understands the difficulties involved in recovery exceptionally well (Pacific Ocean with all its tidal strength, as well as troughs and trenches). With all of that experience he believes this is much harder. I will happily bow to his experience in this field.

Referring specifically to the 'jumble' I was talking about, the deeper they dug the more they discovered object not from Alexandria but from a hundred miles away.. NOVA , 1997, excerpts...


Every day, the divers discover more and more relics of ancient Egypt. In total, twenty-six sphinxes will be found, including this one, still intact, from the age of Ramses the Great. For a site that was expected to yield Greek ruins, the number of pharaonic statues is amazing. How did they get here? Deciphering the hieroglyphs on dozens of blocks, the archaeologists keep finding the names of Atum and Horakhte. These were the gods of Heliopolis, an ancient Egyptian religious center more than a hundred miles south of Alexandria. Some of these blocks were carved a thousand years before Alexandria was founded. What were obelisks and sphinxes from ancient Heliopolis doing in the Greek city?

There is indeed many lost civilizations lost to time and sediment beneath the seas, which makes these pictures and excavation questionable in how they are presented, they do not seem to reflect a 1200 year old buried find, nice presentation though, just not very believable as to the voracity or authenticity.

When we are to be shown these discoveries in real time as they occur then they will show a vastly different scenario, in evidential facts.
