Do you know which Greek goddess you are most like? Take this fun quiz to find out which goddess you are so you can have those around you start bringing you gifts and bowing down before you!
Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.
Thonis was an ancient Egyptian city once found near the Canopic Mouth of the Nile. You won't be able to see it on land. That's because Thonis is located underwater!
It took the world thousands and thousands of years to realize that the city of Thonis was real. For the longest time, it was called Heracleion by the ancient Greeks who believed It was visited by Paris and Helen of Troy, the daughter of Zeus and the queen of Sparta. Menelaus, who was jealous of their love, supposedly stranded them there. The name Heracleion came from the belief that Hercules himself visited Thonis on multiple occasions. But this was all before it was discovered hiding in the Nile.
It wasn't until 2000 that the French discovered the ruins of Thonis. This both devastated and overjoyed Greeks who believed in the legends. Some thought it meant that the tale of Helen and Paris couldn't be true since the city was real. Others thought it meant that the legend was most definitely true.
However, it was later discovered that Heracleion was indeed important. Back in the Late Period, Thonis was Egypt's main port for international trade and collection of taxes. Though this wasn't linked to the mythological city until after it was discovered. How it ended up underwater may be the biggest mystery, but some speculate that an earthquake or something similar eventually led to the softening of the soil and sinking of the city. That, or Hercules just got really mad.
