Soaking It All In…

and basic Eyesight will and can confirm The City of Heracles

is submerged. In

the Real. In Waters.

Byo Snorkel. To visit, sink or swim. There. Now.


From around the Year 2000 the City has been slowly uncovered. Still

in Waters tho’.

Teams of Divers, Scientists, Historians, Researchers

  • co. have brought up much

Treasures. Treasures


of a Sunken, Lost and Legendary Lands. Heracles

Figurines, Bottles,

Jars, Incense Burners.

Temples, Rooms, Barges, Coffins, Steles, Helmets, Anchors and

more, mores.


All the Civilised and Essentials thereof. A City. Of Heroes. Heracles.

UnderWaters. Now.


Partly Marshy Seawaters abound off the Coast of Egypt there.

Nomened now as Abu Qir Bay, approx. 15miles NE of Alexandria.



In… Too Deep.?.

Heracleion/Thonis a Major Port and Emporion as well. Well as

massive Tradings therein

much of the Mediterranean Maritime shipped on by. Night,

Day. Times and Places.

Mentioned oft and so in the Writ of such Greeks of Yore. As

Herodotus, Strabo and

Diodorus. The Ruins appeared first glimpsed from above. A

Plane flying over

revealed structures in and of Belows. Waters. Fascinating

Find. Therein. Using Modern


Mapping, Radar, Sonar and so on, the extent of the City

reveals quite an Urban

Sprawl. The sinking of the Heracles City

seems to have been rather gradual and a

combo of Natural Our World Tectonic and Waters

Movements. Several shifts vis Quakes, Low lying

Land Flooding and so forth. Forthrightly or not. Over

Times and Places.


At a Time and Place in the Mod. Such too can

occur. New Orleans, Venice,

Regions of The Netherlands/China, the Typical

Types with that sinking feeling therein. Thereof in

such Olden Cities;


a City Venetian of Rivers, Lagoons, Ponds and WaterWays. A

Network of such Waters

that wind arounds and too are battled against. In

so many Ways. Satellites have



such Issues as Venice, The City thereof, sunks. Deeper. In.

A sprawling City that more is becoming In rather than

On. Waters inundate. That

is. That is

Why such Legends. Are still ongoing. Helps One

understand the Fates of Heracleion. In

spite of All attempts with available Tech, Minds, Hands

and so forth. Forthrightly

does Mother Nature say. Nay. To


that expansion. Then. Looming Ecological Disasters

and Mishaps also shape

Destiny. Ours. Our


World Legends are oft a Reminder, a wake-up Call. To

this and that.

Destiny, Fates, Life.


CoastLines are a fragile Environ at Times and Places

has also been an Undercurrent

in many Tales. Tall and True.
