A real “sunken island” in the vicinity of Troy

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:

|GPS Location of the sunken island / Karos Bank
Quote: “Kharos Bank (Kharos Bank) is a reef(s) (class H – Hydrographic) in (Greece (general)), Greece (Europe) with the region font code of Eastern Europe…
Its coordinates are 39°55’0″ N and 25°33’0″ E in DMS (Degrees Minutes Seconds) or 39.9167 and 25.55 (in decimal degrees). Its UTM position is LE71 and its Joint Operation Graphics reference is NJ35-02.”
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.
