I hope it is Atlantis. So much speculation has been placed in all the theories linked with Atlantis. Whether the Atlanteans help built the pyramids, or orichalcum, the magical source of energy they produced which have been speculated to power large machines and robots (according to some lines of investigation, links to follow though...). If all that had been attributed to Atlantis is true, and we finally have found it then we can possibly be looking at a new age for mankind. I can't wait for all of this!!!!!! .

Or, Atlantis was just another civilization, but sadly enough, they were in the wrong place at the wrong time, no Robots, machines, but another normal civ.

LOL! Lets just hope that at least they have found a major ancient city, lost beneath the waves for countless years, not atlantis but still an amazing discover, but if this is atlantis, just imagine what can finally be proven or dissproven.

I'd like to see what exactly is on the other side of the "Acropolis Hill". The other should match the side we see. It may not have been an actual circular-shaped city but an oval. I don't see any other walls... degradation maybe...

I hope that these strcutures are indeed 10,000+ years old... that would make human civilization much earlier, and opens up new possibilities to when our civilization started.

Im surprised they are boasting such claims already. I feel we need more "proof" that this in fact is the lost city of Atlantis. Im sure there are other undiscovered lost civilizations covered by bodies of water.

I'd love to think that this was finally it, but to my untrained eye it just looks like the hillside slid down and pushed up that ridge at the bottom. When they start bringing up artifacts from the bottom then I'll start to get excited.

An American researcher discovered man-made walls underwater 50 miles southeast of Cyprus. The remains fit Plato's deion of Atlantis. Cyprus' chief government archaeologist is still skeptical, though. There are hopes to uncover more from the remains in the future. Source: http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/a...scovery_claim_7

This seems to remind me of the "We've set out to find proof of alien involvement in Siberia, and we've found it" expedition.
