Ancient City in Egypt Rises

Wednesday, September 08, 2010 Posted by relentless

Ancient City by the Sea rises amid Egypt's resorts. The ancient city, known as Leukaspis or Antiphrae, was said to be hidden for centuries after it was nearly wiped out by a fourth century tsunami that devastated the region.

More recently, it was nearly buried under the modern resort of Marina in a development craze that turned this coast into the summer playground for Egypt's elite.

It was discovered almost 25 years ago and the Egyptian Government in now preparing to open the ancient Leukaspis' tombs, villas and city streets to visitors — a unique example of a Classical era city in a country better known for its pyramids and Pharaonic temples.
Visitors can go to understand how people lived back then, how they built their graves, lived in villas or traded in the main agora (square).. Everyone's heard of the resort Marina, now they will know the historic Marina. (Ahmed Amin, the local inspector for the antiquities department)
