The lost island

A real “sunken  island” in the vicinity of Troy

Article by Stijn van den Hoven / 2018/11/07

There is a lost island in the mediteranean. A real sunken realm with its name meaning “gold” No recent information is made public on this specific island as far as I know. It would be interesting to send an underwater expedition here.

The lost island of Chryse, Greece, was “rediscovered” in the 1960’s by amateur archeologist Marquis Piero Nicola and identified with the Karos bank.

However after I did some research of my own on the subject it is actualy listed on maps from 1809 from the island of Lemnos in Greece shown here:

Sourc

Chryse means “golden” in greek ,  At a 12 meter dive it should make for some pretty interesting ruins of for example a temple of Appolo as the area is 10x10miles.

I do have more information on this which is not published here online. As far as I know no official further archeological research has been done at this particular spot and it would make an interesting location to pursue further.
