Ancient lost cities of the Middle East

Jiggles and the Archaeologists takes place in an unnamed area of North Africa, and the ancient city they were excavating was based upon pulpy ideas of the pharaohs, filtered through the Indiana Jones movies and with a lot of sex added. The cities in this article are all to the East of Egypt, but imagine the tales that could be spun from metropolises, and even empires, which thrived for centuries and then disappeared completely. Some of them were rediscovered in the 19th and 20th centuries, whilst others remain hidden or were mythical to begin with.

Should Jiggleswick Air meet the archaeologists again, perhaps they will do so in Mesopotamia.
