Lost City of Heracleon Found Underwater

The city of Heracleon has been found underwater about four miles of the coast of Egypt at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea. Quite a few well-preserved statues have been found. Another find was a large stela originally set-up by the Pharaoh Nectanebo I (the link below has a good picture of the stela being raised from the bottom of the sea).

Some information and photos of the find can be seen here.
