Now there is a chance that Archaeologists might be on the brink of finding the tomb of doomed lovers.
Work is about to start excavating three sites near a temple in west Alexandria. A series of deep shafts were discovered in which it is thought that Anthony and Cleopatra might be buried.
This is an area where recently, tombs containing ten mummies, as well as a bust of Cleopatra and coins bearing her image were found. Along with a mask believed to belong to Mark Anthony.
Some scholars have stated that Cleopatra, who along with Mark Anthony committed suicide in 30BC after losing the Battle of Actium, was very ugly. The coins actually indicate that Cleopatra was in no way unattractive.
So if she’s found will forensic art experts show Cleopatra as looking like the 3D computer image of her sister Arsinoe.
