Off the coast, a diver notes the location of a sphinx submerged in seven meters of water. Thought to have been thrown there by an earthquake long ago, the two-ton colossus was discovered near the site of the Pharos, the legendary lighthouse and one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. A French archaeological expedition also found remains of the lighthouse itself.
