3 Roman shipwrecks found in Egypt

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.
