Cleopatra - The Mummy - A John Storm adventure with the Elizabeth Swann

 

 

A story as old as time, Cleopatra is returned to life, after her tragic departure.

 

 

 

 

 

For nearly four hundreds years after the death of the last Queen of Egypt, Alexandria and Thonis-Heracleion plied a sea trade, tumbling to new lows of corruption and immorality, until around 365 AD, the Gods were angered sufficiently to summon a dreadful cocktail of high winds, shifting plates and giant waves to wash the offending city and it's satellites under the sea - sending all those within to a watery grave.

 

Alexandria was hit by shock waves that stuck down buildings, shaken to their foundations, followed by waves fifteen meters in height that dashed onto the rubble with great force, submerging the city, dragging it down into the depths of a stormy Mediterranean, followed by high winds that sealed the fate of those within. Thonis-Heracleion suffered the same fate. The Gods did not reward desecration, misbehaving or unnatural mismanagement on such a scale, threatening the sanctity of Cleopatra's last resting place.

 

So ended the governing, as had wrecked the rulings of many unjust kingdoms. With the storms subsiding, the waves returning to the former bright green-blue clarity, lapping the sandy shores - and the sun shining forth - as though nothing had taken place. Save for the rapid cleansing, washing the blighted city from sight and memory.

 

Cleopatra's tomb was taken down in the striking, to be buried for at least sixteen hundred years more, until fresh movement of the earth's crust from anthropogenic warming of the planet, signaled clues as to the whereabouts of her sarcophagus, the mummy inside tightly wrapped to contain preserving, oils, spices and herbs. Fortunately, well enough conserved, but newly in danger from increasingly potent acidic seas, encroaching peaceful inertness - and in need of further acidity protections.

 

It was time to effect a rescue. The Gods would once more smile on the last Pharaoh queen, rewarding her for her suffering and bravery when alive, as a revered Goddess in her own right. That she might join in the struggle to save the planet from over exploitation, and help restore a more natural order.
