Before the foundation of Alexandria, the city knew glorious times as the obligatory port of entry to Egypt for all ships coming from the Greek world.

The city of Thonis-Heracleion was hidden away for thousands of years, submerged deep under the sea. The city was founded around the 8th century BC, underwent diverse natural catastrophes, and finally sunk entirely into the depths of the Mediterranean.
