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

 

 

JOHN STORM SEQUEL: Thonis-Heracleion was Egypt’s greatest port for much of the first millennium B.C. before Alexander the Great established the Alexandrian metropolis in 331 B.C. It is unclear how and exactly why the city sank into the sea (some time in the first millennium), but the discoveries at Egypt’s primary customs port have been revealing, except for the whereabouts of Queen Cleopatra's tomb.
