This large-scale exhibition at the British Museum shows underwater finds from two wealthy submerged Egyptian cities in the Mediterranean off the coast of Alexandria.
Some of the statuary and items show a combination of Greek and Egyptian artistic elements, and shed light on how these cultures interacted around 200-100 BC. See and enjoy if you can!
