The head of a Ptolomeic king depicted as a pharoah, discovered in the lost city of Canopus
About 1,300 years ago two Egyptian cities, Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, sank into the Mediterranean Sea. They’re still there, perfectly preserved. They were inhabited not only by native Egyptians but also Greeks and Romans, and eventually Byzantine Christians. The cities were known from texts — Egyptian decrees, mythology and the writings of  Herodotus — but no one had actually seen them.

Treasures from Egyptian cities lost to sea now on display in spectacular new show
