Thonis was strategically situated between the Mediterranean Sea and a great mostly landlocked lake, which also linked to the Nile river.
But in 2000, a team of scientists famously rediscovered the sunken city after a four-year geophysical survey. Franck Goddio, an Institut Européen d'Archéologie Sous-Marine (IEASM) team located the remains of Thonis beneath the waters and mud of Aboukir Bay, about 32 km northeast of Alexandria.The images and videos of the excavation that the team is releasing paint a portrait of a city frozen in time.Thonis was a city of buildings: to the south resided a huge temple, devoted to the then-supreme god Amun-Gereb; the north and east of the city were predominantly devoted to the port; the west was bordered by the lake, steaming with ships that would either halt at Thonis for a while or make their way across the narrow channel that linked it to the Nile river. The team has unearthed gold coins, bronze coins, gigantic five-metre sculptures, sarcophagi and hundreds of smaller statues of other gods from the sea floor.An Egyptian lawyer has come under attack after stating that women who wear ripped jeans should be raped.Nabih al-Wahsh said that if a woman wore such trousers she deserved to be sexually assaulted and harassed, and said it was an Egyptian man's 'national duty' to rape her.Considering that Thonis was a major port of the region at the time, these findings are not surprising.
Equally unsurprising are the remains of the more than 64 ships the team uncovered lining the sea floor of the region.
Thonis was there, reposing silently in the abyss but no less majestically as is often the case with past sunken grandness.
It is only now however, 13 years after its rediscovery, that the team is beginning to comprehend the real grandness that was Thonis.
Thonis took that risk but ultimately paid for it with its life.
One and a half centuries after its beginnings, the great city of Thonis sank into the depths of the very sea that had allowed it to prosper for so long.
Although scientists are still unsure about the exact cause of this cataclysm, most believe that a rise in sea level coupled with a sudden collapse of unstable sediment-heavy earth caused the city to carve in and plunge into the abyss.
