Found again the mausoleo of Antonio and Cleopatra… (30 a.c.). little after the defeat of Azio), it has been localized with certainty. Its ruderi are found on found them of the Mediterranean, just in front of the historical Library of Alexandria of Egypt and to the reggia, anch' identified it in the oadstead of the port “eunòstos”. The news comes from Harry Tzalas, director of a team of archeologi underwater Greeks (Greek Institute of the Nautical Traditions), that it tells moved: “To render us sure of the ritrovamento it has been the gigantic monolitico pillar of the Tempio di Iside, today insabbiato to eight meters of depth on I found them marine, to 200 meters from it puts into effect them coast line: it is the only great monolitica column of the tolemaica dynasty, erected in the Tempio di Iside described from the historians of the age; and he was just prospiciente to the Mausoleo, where the copy direction killed and came mummificata the antichi uses second”. It is logical that a meaningful monument therefore has been erected of forehead to the sanctuary of Iside, sight the identification of Cleopatra with the ancient divinity egizia; and sight the identification of Antonio with Osiride in the evident attempt of giving mitologica substance and therefore of divinizzare the reigning spouses: and such process of divinizzazione would have been cured in the particular minimums also “post mortem”. According to the the word of Dione Cassio and Plutarco, storiografi with the the taste to romanzare, Antonio, escape to Alexandria, by now inexorable defeat decide to kill, but not find no disposed to help it: therefore it was hurt mortally provoking a extended agony. Being its desire to die beside Cleopatra it made oneself to transport near the Mausoleo in which the Queen was blocked, where could only enter for means of ropes that hoisted it until the high plans of the building. Cleopatra, in fact, did not succeed just to aprirgli the door because of the structure of the building: an imposing type interment macedone that, once sluice a heaviest architrave, would have been impossible to reopen. And just the enormous architrave has been localized them close with to hundred of other fragments: “The perhaps decisive element Is this, than confirmation our supposizioni”, say Tzalas. The bodies of the two loving suicides, however, did not find interment in that one tomba because Ottaviano wanted was places to you in a place that remained in order always secret in order to prevent that their rests could inspire actions of anti-imperial rebellion. The definitive interment, equally regale, would have been in its turn identified from Zahi Hawass in the course of recent campaigns of digging: one would find in the neighbor Taposiris Magna (30 km to the West from Alexandria) and once again it would lie inside of a tempio isiaco to strengthen the identification of the famous monarch with this goddess.
