Except it doesn't, since the article itself clearly says:



There's a difference between a myth and a legend.

Nevertheless, not everyone would agree with you

Because another story on Heracleion is titled:

'Thought To Be A Myth, An 8th Century B.C. Egyptian City, Heracleion, Was Found Sunken 150 Feet Underwater'

http://www.newsforag...century-bc.html


The article states that:

'Until a decade ago, no one knew if Heracleion, believed to be an ancient harbor city, was fiction or real. Now, reports the Telegraph, the researchers who found it 150 feet beneath the surface of Egypt's Bay of Aboukir are sharing some of the amazing historical artefacts preserved there. The finds include 64 ships, 16-foot-tall statues, 700 anchors and countless gold coins and smaller artefacts'.

So you found someone else who's as ignorant of the difference between a myth and a legend. Heracleion existed for nearly 2000 years before it disappeared, in the middle of the 1st millenium AD. So nobody knew if it was real or fiction? Really? Sadly, this is a case of ignorance breeding offspring.

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus

Wonder how much more the oceans hold.

I think more than we can ever imagine... I can't wait to hear of more discoveries in my lifetime.  :)

I thought the OP link and a couple other links I read all said 30 feet under the bay, not 150 feet.
