Quick! Someone Tell SG-1!!

The quest to find the lost city of Atlantis has begun in earnest off Cyprus's southern shores.

A US-led team of explorers claims the ancient city lies on the seabed between Cyprus and Syria.

With the aid of unique underwater maps, a US researcher claims to have assembled evidence to prove the mythological island of Atlantis really existed.

Using sophisticated sonar technology, California-based Robert Salmas says he has not only been able to pinpoint Atlantis to a sunken land mass off Cyprus's southern coast, but even discern its geographical features as described by Plato.

The alleged discovery has been greeted with barely concealed mirth by the Mediterranean island's tourism office.
