|Egypt announced Tuesday that archaeologists have uncovered three Roman shipwrecks off the country's north coast. The discoveries were made off the coast of Alexandria, in Abu Qir Bay. |
Three gold coins that date to the time of Augustus were found.
|Work in Alexandria’s harbor began in September, with researchers diving down to the sunken city of Heracleion.|
Thonis-Heracleion was founded around the 8th century BC, underwent a series of natural catastrophes, and eventually sunk entirely into the depths in the 8th century CE.
