A lost city with two names, Thonis-Heracleion was discovered about 6.5 km off the coast of Alexandria in 2000 by underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio. Called Thonis by the Egyptians and Heracleion by the Greeks, this important port city was founded in the 8th century BC, and sank to the bottom of the Mediterranean by the 8th cetury AD. To put that in context, Alexandria wasn't founded until 331 BC.
Goddio has been doing extensive excavations on the site, bringing up statues that I don't feel bashful calling marvelous. Check out Goddio's website here.
