Most of these aren't actually that old; nor was there anything particularly advanced about them—their technology was roughly on par with that of Russia in the same period (Kiev had almost three times as many people as the maximum estimate for Great Zimbabwe, when it was sacked by the Mongols in 1270). And they aren't really "lost", they just fell into decline, like Sparta in the Byzantine period. Also, Axum is still inhabited by its builders' descendents. If Axum goes on the list, so do Paris and Rome, both of which are older—and Paris isn't really in cultural continuity with its builders (the Gauls), Axum is. This trope is about ancient lost cities, not urban centers of post-10th Century Iron Age civilizations that happen to have fallen into disuse, or ancient cities that are still inhabited by their builder-cultures.
