    Sounds almost like what New Orleans is now, right down to the literally sinking into the ocean.

    They even found a trailer-park-trash mummy flashing her boobs for a hieroglyph carver from "Girls Gone Primal."

    It's a drive-through menu for Falafel Pharaoh's Phast Food chain, which was really popular back then.:oldrazz:

    Just kidding, they've already translated it, although it tells allot about the culture and times, that particualr part doesn't seem that mysterious or spectacular https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=kkiOtVlDfNU#t=1350s

    -They say - it tells the name and location of the city with an edict of Pharoh Nektanebos the First (378-362 BC) imposing a 10% levy on Greek goods in favour of a temple to the goddess Neith.

    What they're imagining the city and main Temple to be all look pretty spectacular though, this was a likley a hub of the Meditaranean world - https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=kkiOtVlDfNU#t=1678s

    What if he stays in his decayed mummy form? Would you still want to be the grape boy?

    Wah! I guess I never checked, "50 by 50 pixels or 49.3 KB (whichever is smaller)"
    At what count does it go up?

    This guy is pretty awesome...

    In a way they are kind of cooler under water.
    Even though that's not how they originally were, I wish there was a way they could be preserved there, under water as we found them, and still be able to visit and explore/study them.

    I image as it's uncovered the major structure of the city/temple will remain down there, they'll just pick at it, and anything that can be will be hauled up and away.

    Will they try and reconstruct it above?
