Lost Egyptian City Found Underwater After 1200 Years
1,200 years ago the ancient Egyptian city of Heracleion disappeared beneath the Mediterranean. Founded around 8th century BC, well before the foundation of Alexandria in 331 BC, it is believed Heracleion served as the obligatory port of entry to Egypt for all ships coming from the Greek world.
Prior to its discovery in 2000 by archaeologist Franck Goddio and the IEASM (European Institute for Underwater Archaeology), no trace of Thonis-Heracleion had been found (the city was known to the Greeks as Thonis). Its name was almost razed from the memory of mankind, only preserved in ancient classic texts and rare inscriptions found on land by archaeologists.

Quebec man turns unfixed pothole in front of his house into garden
When a pothole appeared in front of Stéphan Vigneault’s Gatineau, Que., home, he took it upon himself to fill it with dirt — and then flowers. The Post‘s Kyla Garvey spoke to the guerrilla gardener on Tuesday:
When did you first plant the garden?
Last summer I first planted it with a neighbour at night, filled the pothole. We did it at night so that people walked by in the morning and would be surprised by it. We chose a night without moon, and did it. This year we planted it again two weeks ago.
What did you plant?
We started with flowers, like lilies and geraniums, but also corn. The corn is starting to grow right now. We don’t know if there is enough soil for it to develop. Last year there was a squash plant but there wasn’t much time to develop, so it stayed very small. More (Stéphan Vigneault/Family Photo)
