Orichalcum or Avrichalcum – a mysterious metal or alloy, about which mention the most ancient Greek authors. Back in the seventh century BC e. Hesiod reports that the shield of Hercules was made of the orichalcum. In one of Homer’s hymns (c. 630 BC) corresponding epithet applied to the curls of Aphrodite.

Chemical analysis of the ingots found showed the presence of copper (75-80%), zinc (15-20%), and a small amount of lead, iron and nickel. The ship on which the ingots were found probably belonged Greeks and sank about 2,600 years ago. His remains were only a thousand feet offshore (304 meters).

Archeology professor Sebastian Tuso was the first to suggest found ingots can be that heirloom, focusing on similarity in the color of metals. In an interview for Discovery News, he was very excited about the discovery and said that never before anything archaeologists have not found a similar.

The most detailed description of the heifer is given by Plato in the dialogue Critium. According to Critias, this substance was in use in Atlantis. “Most of the necessities of life were provided by the island itself, first of all any types of fossil solid and fusible metals, including what is now known only by name, and then it existed in practice: native orichalcum, extracted from the bowels of the earth in various places islands and in value then inferior only to gold. ”

Critias further reports that “the relationship of the Atlantis is towards friend in the matter of government settled in accordance with the Poseidon prescriptions, as commanded by the law recorded by the first kings on heirloom stele, which stood in the center of the island – inside the temple of Poseidon. “In addition,” the walls around the outer earthen they encircled the citadel’s rings all over the circle in copper, causing molten metal, the wall of the inner shaft was cast made of tin, and the wall of the Acropolis itself is an orichalcum that emitted a fiery shine. ”

If the ingots from Sicily are really the same heirloom, then the legends about Atlantis receive another confirmation of their authenticity.

According to Sebastian Tuso, Jela in the 6th century BC is fast grew as a wealthy city with many craft workshops for which apparently were brought in bullion.
