Rediscovering the Enigmatic “Atlantean Lost Treasures” in Crete: A Remarkable Archaeological Revelation

Atlantean Lost Treasures were discovered deep inside Crete in an ancient Minoan-era building. Lasithi Antiquities Ephorate conducted these excavations in the western part of Chryssi Islet, a municipality in Ierapetra, eastern Crete, as they discovered this new Minoan settlement which is believed to have had a flourishing economy unlike any we’ve ever seen before.

They had stone tanks that were full of marine species. This large building in particular though is worth noting that it dates back to 1,800 – 1,500 BC and it is filled to the brim with insanely precious treasures. What’s even stranger is that the building was covered in purple paint, which is the first instance of purple dye being used in history as far as we know. Although the room was originally a storeroom, they found two additional rooms that were kept from prying eyes and filled with treasures.

Amongst these treasures we have the following most notable ones: a golden ring, 26 golden beads, a golden bracelet, five copper bracelets, a copper ring, and a ton of glass beads out of which four were made out with “Egyptian blue” and 10 of lapis lazuli. These 3,500-year-old artifacts all indicate that some kind of aristocratic family placed its treasures in this area. All of them consisted of 68kg (149.91 lbs) of treasuries
