Step aside Indiana Jones – you are an underachiever.
Step aside for Deifallah, a French Algerian treasure hunter. Speaking at the Arab World Institute in Paris, Mr. Deifallah claims to have found the grave of Alexander the Great. In addition, he claims to have found invaluable treasures belonging to arguably the greatest Emperor of all time.
Aloula News reports that during the lecture, Mr. Deifallah presented a slide show to the audience, containing pictures of statues, gold and precious stones surrounding the grave.
Mr. Deifallah said that the grave and the treasures were located in a hilly area in Jordan. He did not specify the exact location of the treasure, which according to him contains pieces, baths and statues made out of gold. The treasures are all decorated with ornate rubies and other precious gemstones.
In addition, Mr. Deifallah claims that the coffins of Cleopatra and Marc Anthony are located in this Jordanian hill. For a country whose capital is renowned for its hilly terrain -- Amman, the capital, known to the ancients as Philadelphia, much like Rome, is a city originally built on 7 hills (since expanded to 19) -- this hardly narrows it down. According to him, the Romans moved these coffins and treasures to the undisclosed area he calls The Bank of Ptolemy.
According to Mr. Deifallah, the entrance to this cave is guarded by a secret organization, which he did not name.
He described the mazes leading to the treasure as being tens of meters long containing booby traps along the way. The mazes lead to two grand halls. One of the halls contains treasures as well as the coffin of Alexander the Great. The other contains the coffins, Marc Antony and fifteen other famous figures from the time period.
Mr. Deifallah says that he has informed the authorities of the location of the treasure, who will reveal this information to the world “at the right time.”
