American researcher Robert Sarmast claims sonar scans reveal man made walls at the bottom of the east Mediterranean Sea that match exactly the descriptions of the acropolis of Atlantis in Plato's writings. But government archaeologist head Pavlos Flourentzoss in Cyprus is skeptical, claiming more proof and study will be needed before any positive claims can be made. Despite this, measurements of more than 60 to 70 points of the general layout and coordinates provided by sonar match so closely Plato's descriptions, that Sarmast stated "...if this is not indeed the acropolis of Atlantis, then this is the world's greatest coincidence." Future expeditions hope to uncover sediment and bring back physical proof.

LIMASSOL, Cyprus (AP) -- An American researcher claimed Sunday to have discovered the remains of the legendary lost city of Atlantis on the bottom of the east Mediterranean Sea. But Cyprus' chief government archaeologist was skeptical.

Robert Sarmast said sonar scanning of the seabed between east Cyprus and Syria revealed man-made walls, one as long as 3 kilometers (2 miles), and trenches at a depth of 1,500 meters (1,640 yards).

"It is a miracle we found these walls as their location, and lengths match exactly the description of the acropolis of Atlantis provided by Plato in his writings," Sarmast said, referring to the ancient Greek philosopher.

This could be a very interesting find that has eluded researchers for many years. Discovering the true ancient city could yield a wealth of information about life in those times, as well as lending some credibility to age old myths.

We've heard this claim before. I think it would be fantastic if it were true. I've always enjoyed the atlantis mythos.
