Pharology is named after Pharos, the famed lighthouse at Alexandria, which is one of the seven "Wonders" of the ancient world.
With a height variously estimated at between 380 and 440 ft, It may have been the world's tallest building in its time.
Built in the 3rd century BC (between 285 and 247 BC), an earthquake in 1303 severely damaged the building, and another in 1323 brought it down.
Divers discovered remains of the lighthouse in Autumn 1994, on the floor of Alexandria's Eastern Harbor.
