    This publication presents for the first time the results of the work carried out in Alexandria by the Institut Européen d’Archéologie Sous Marine (IEASM). This work was made possible with the support of the Hilti Foundation and Discovery Communications Inc. The 1992 season marks the date when the first topographical campaigns of 1996 and 1997 are reported and analysed in detail. From the first topographical survey the most modern techniques were used wich allowed the team to determine exactly the ancient topography of the ancient Ptolemaic harbour and the city of Cleopatra. The contours of the ancient areas, today under the sea, the discovery of exceptional archeological remains, the problems of ancient harbour installations and their function are discussed at length. Observations on the enigmas posed by the vast fields of submerged ruins, archaeological analysis, study of the stone blocks found, the epigraphy and a study of the pharaonica, along with an extensive comparision with the texts of ancient writers and a study of the statuary.
