Archaeologists have found a 2,200-year-old shipwreck buried at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea.

The wreck of a military ship has been found under the ancient city of Heraklion (also known as Thonis), which fell into the sea after being destroyed by earthquakes in the 2nd century BC.

Besides the remains of a burial ground, it was noted that the 25-meter-long shipwreck was a boat shared to sail the Nile.

“[The ship sunk] As a result of the collapse of the temple and the fall of huge blocks on it during the second century BC due to a devastating earthquake. A statement issued by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said that the fall of these stone blocks contributed to keeping the ship under the deep channel, which is now filled with the wreckage of the temple.

Archaeologists found the wreck under 5 meters of mud and debris with a burial site that was covered with a pile of rocks.

It was discovered using a type of sonar by an Egyptian-French expedition led by the European Institute of Underwater Archeology (IEASM).

“This discovery beautifully illustrates the presence of Greek merchants who lived in that city,” the ministry told Reuters.

“They built their own shelters near the huge temple of Amun. It was destroyed at one time and its remains were found mixed with the remains of the Egyptian temple.”

The city of Heraklion, where Cleopatra was opened, was said to have been one of the most important commercial centers in the Mediterranean before disappearing into what is now Abu Qir Bay.

Heraklion, which was located off the northern coast of Egypt, fell into the sea about 2,200 years ago and was lost for thousands of years until divers found its remains in 2000.
