]A city submerged

Helike Foundation - Search for Ancient Helike -

]More information

"In 2001, after twelve years of field work, the Helike Project
brought to light the first traces of the lost Classical city,
buried under deposits of an ancient lagoon. And, to their
astonishment, the explorers also discovered nearby an entire
Early Bronze Age town, dating from about 2400 BC, in an
extraordinary state of preservation. An earthquake apparently
caused the submergence of this Prehistoric town twenty centuries
before a similar fate led to the disappearance of its Classical
successor. The exploration and excavation of Prehistoric and
Classical Helike will be the work of decades to come."

And, I believe, one of the suggested inspirations for a certain young chap named Plato


Definitely strong similarities

Yep that is what caught my eye too. There were a number of earth quakes and Tsunamis during and before this period. With the loss of cities in Palestine, the Delta and elsewhere. In historic times Lisbon and Port Royal showed us how this can happen.
