The city is located on the northern coast of Egypt and this 4,281-foot-long tunnel was carved out of stone. It was discovered by the Dominican Archaeological Mission of Egypt. The city of Taposiris Magna was founded by Pharaoh Patolemay II between 280 and 270 BC. It is currently located in the Alexandria area. In the past, this area became a great cultural and religious center after Alexander’s conquest of Egypt in 332 BC. Archaeologist Kathleen Martinez believes that there is a 1% chance that Cleopatra and Mark Antony may have been buried here.
‘Cleopatra wanted to associate with the ancient gods’
Kathleen said that this tunnel could lead to the tomb. He said that if this happens, it could be the most important discovery of the 21st century. He said that after the suicide of Mark Antony, Cleopatra also planned to be buried there. Kathleen said, ‘Cleopatra had persuaded Octavian that she should also be buried with Mark in Egypt. Cleopatra wanted to be buried because she wanted to be reunited with the ancient gods Isis and Osiris.
The archaeologist said that the god Osiris is believed to bestow immortality. He said, ‘Cleopatra believed that after death the gods would allow her to be with Antony and that they would be reunited again.’ Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism has revealed that this newly discovered tunnel is 6.5 feet high and is 43 feet underground. Seeing the design of this tunnel, it is being described as a miracle of engineering. Archaeologists have found many ceramic jars and other antiquities from the tunnel. There were many tunnels in Egypt in ancient times, due to which a part of the temple was submerged.
