What lies beneath Panarea Island? Could it be a pyramid?

@Recognition shared his findings with me, and I think we could do some related research. I am not sure how credible Google underwater imaging is, at the same time right angles in nature are very rare.
  • In this case we are talking about a possible 10 miles by 10 miles underwater structure.
  • The structure appears to resemble some of the pyramids we would commonly see on the other side of the Atlantic ocean.

Panarea Island
Panarea is the smallest of the seven inhabited Aeolian Islands, a volcanic island chain in north of Sicily, southern Italy. There are currently about 280 residents living on the island year-round.
  • The island is an inactive volcano with a total surface area of only 3.4 km2 (1.3 sq mi).
  • The highest point on the island, Punta del Corvo, is 421 m (1,381 ft) above sea level.
  • There are thermal springs near the village of Punta di Peppe e Maria.
In antiquity, the island was named "Euonymos"; the nearby islet of Basiluzzo, administered from Panarea, was named "Hycesia". There is archaeological evidence on the island dating back to Mycenaean inhabitants (~ 1200 BCE); later the island was settled by Romans. There were people still living on the island until pirates and other Mediterranean raiders made life unbearable after the fall of the Western Roman Empire.
  • Etymology of Euonymos: from Ancient Greek εὐώνυμος (euṓnumos, “lucky”), from εὖ (eû, “good”) + ὄνομα (ónoma, “name”)


KD: Well, I don't know whether what we have was indeed a pyramid, but it could be a structure of sorts. Let's see what we can find out.

I'm afraid we can't find any written sources for that period. For the simple reason that back in mythical times, this group of islands was uninhabited. Before Liparus and his minions fled/arrived there. For anyone interested, here's what Diodorus of Siculus wrote about it.
The region itself is quite dangerous in terms of volcanic activity.

Quote: «Strongyle, nu Strombolo, is omtrend tien mijlen in den omtrek, en de grond niet min vruchtbaer, dan die van Lipari, maer het geheele land wordt dikwijls verwoest door de vlammen, welke een berg in het eiland uitbraekt.»
Looks like the translation is:
Quote: "Strongyle, now Strombolo, is about ten miles in circumference, and the soil is not less fertile than that of Lipari, but the whole land is often devastated by the flames which a mountain breaks out in the island."

Thanks for looking. I’m still on the hunt for clues!
