Heracles is a very busy, Working Class Demi-God. Of Yore. Heracles Labours in Our World. Legends work their Ways thru’. Such. Works. Workings inherent a City. Are and were soon enough sunk. The City. That is Sunk. The City of Heracles. Slide-Show Herein. From Ancient Greece and Egypt… a wake-up call for Venice, New Orleans and such. Sink, swim. Aways.

 

Heracles First Footstep on Egyptian soil was somewhat Earth breaking. Shattering

much. Earth. Much of Earth was so broken then to erect a Great Temple in

veneration. Thereof. To Heracles. His Foot as well. Well as

His Demi-God other bits. Too. To

 

Heracleion, the City. Nomen Greek thereof.

Thonis in Egyptian vernacular. Thus be.

 

East of Canopus where it branches off. Of and from The River Nile in and of

Our World. Legends

from those Ancient Greeks. Of Yore. Do say and so. Some more. Also. Also

 

is this.

You nor i, Shiro can set Foot on or in this Famed City of Yore. Never. Ever…

Unless enwrapped in a Wet-suit. That is. That is

for. This City of Demi-God

Heracles. Legendary

Lost City.

BYO Snorkel

means and are the Ways to go. Into. Thereof. Now.

His Lost City.

 

Sits on Earth. No mores. Moreover

 

 

Heracles, son of Alcmena and Zeus. Zeus, being divinely reproductive.

In order to Father this herculean Hero. Faked it. Disguised himself as a Father.

Alcmena’s Husband-Amphitryon that is. To fool the Mortal Alcmena

 

with those o so shapely and turned Ankles. That turned. Zeus. On. On

 

and with such divine and benevolent acts of sharing. Wholly upset that Holy

Applescart. Hera

as well. Well as then

being the Wife of Zeus, she was left off that particular Party List. Disgusted

not disguised. Had a bit of a turn, Herself it seems. Simply refused to give any

step-motherly Love. Therein. At

 

All. To Heracles. Any mores.

 

Nothing much said it turns out, about the shape of Her Ankles either. Hera

that is. Is that

 

The Zeus.

 

then, to find too. To thus and so Alcmena, the daughter of Electron.

Grand-daughter of Heroic Perseus and Andromeda was really not impressed

with the under-handed and roving Hands,

Godly attractions She had. Attracted so zeusly. Zealously as well. Well as

 

trying to so… sort the meanderings and meanings of the Heavenlies:

Then;..

Hero Heracles… has Four Parents. Two Human. Two Divine.

 

Amphitryon and Alcmena, King and Queen, Mortal, Mother and step-Father.

Cousins and Grand-children of Perseus, Zeus son…

with Zeus as the Biological Father… Hera

 

as the snotty, step-Mum.

 

Constellation Heracles.

 

Who’s Your…

…Daddy Grand.?.

Not only such convolutions in this twisted Fam. Tree… for this and that

Divine acts means:

Zeus is now a… Great-great-Grand-Father-in-law.?.

Holy high jinks it seems. In deed.

 

Anyways, those Lineage Ways sort out is sorta waywards.

Heracles, after a lil’ lag of Mothers Love earned the

herculean nomen given.

 

The “… Glory of Hera…” ’tis Heracles.

 

In Greek. Of Yore.

In Rome of then. Hercules.

 

The Glory of Hera.

 

 

Deeds done Demi-God style are many and oft. Not necessarily divine.

But Deeds done lots and well. Done. Lots Like; Belows.

 

Heracles Deeds…

In deed indeed:

 

  • Still in His Cot. Serpent Strangler x2.
  • Murdered Wife and Children. 12 Years Sentence served. Service

Oxen. For snacking thereof.

Killing the above Giant Herdsman, Shepherd Eurytion and His Dog. Also.

The Twin-Headed Orthrus. Lost both. Heads that day.

 

Heracles took the Oxen as well. Well as

 

The Prometheus.

 

The Atlas + co.

 

  • Finding, Freeing Prometheus.

Helping Atlas bear such Worldly weights. For a lil’ while He bore.

The Our World. Legends recall for which. He. Heracles

 

did so receive this and those heroic

Golden Apples of Hesperides as bare reward. For that

bear act.

 

 

The Cerberus. The Younger.

 

  • Stalking, Capturing, Carrying the Three-headed Cerberus

back and downs too. To and fro it’s then Master, Hades. Belows. Our World.

 

Hell. In. Our World.

 

Then…

 

A Golden. Fleeces.

 

  • Voyaging with Jason and the Argonauts to fleece that Golden Fleece. Aways.
  • Poop clean up at the Stables of Augeas….

3,000 Oxen… First cleanup in 30 Years. Two Rivers of Water diverted

for this doo-doo deed of daggery. In deed. Water Works indeed. Moving.

 

Heracleion this and that Famed City has moved. Too. To,

Well… Tbh… and Btw’s…

 

the Waters have actually moved. Over. Over this City. That is.

That is even after such grave Heracled Heroism. A Watery Finale

does and so. Comes to rest.

On the Sea bottom. Floor.

 

Acted out. For Real. In the Real. In Our World. Legends

 

 

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 that is. Is that

 

 

finds such as Statues, Potteries, Coins, Lamps, Goblets, 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

Imaged

 

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

 

Map of displacement rate (mm/yr) detected in Venice by TerraSAR-X (COA0612 © DLR) Satellite scans from March 2008 and January 2009. Negative values indicate settlement down, positive mean uplift.

 

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 and any mishap

can affect. Many. Displacement of Peoples has also been an Undercurrent

in many Tales. Tall and True.

 

Heroic or not. A

Unique Version of Our World. Legends, History now. Now

no longer. Hidden in those shifting and shimmery

Seas of Times and Places. Places such as. The City of Heracles.

Lives On still. Though.

 

Still Wet. Too. To now and
