Goddio’s divers found another incredible find in the sea: the ancient city of Thonis. The Greeks called the city Heracleion. However, there was a debate about whether the city was fictional or real, since it disappeared into the sea over 1200 years ago. Researchers found it 150 feet under the surface of Egypt’s Bay of Aboukir. One of the most exciting finds from the area was a votive bark depicting the god Osiris.
