Heracleion City, Lost and Found

Heracles CityHERACLEION, the City of Heracles, Egypt.

I have brought these two picture here, with respect, purely for the purpose of promoting the amazing work of the archaeologists, divers and photographers who have brought to light the remnants of this lost and splendid city, dedicated to Heracles and once protected by Hapi, the God of the Nile and Fertility (see picture above)

For the full story and many more wonderful photographs by Christoph Gerigk, please go to Frank Goddio’s website, which is too good for me to replicate:
