Posidon (Father Sidon) was a son of Canaan, and submerged now off Atlit, Israel, are stone ruins of a city from Ice Age times, just south of the now submerged megalithic ruins of ancient Sidon, and Atlas was a son of Sidon, so the Atl in Atlit apparently derives from the Atl in Atlas.
Sidon’s grandfather Ham, also known, as Cham, Chem, Kem, Chronus, and Chronos (Time Man, precession mapping), was reputed by the Greeks to have overseen the building of the ancient megalithc cites of North Africa, ruins of which can be found both on and offshore at Syrtis, Cyrene, and just east of Gibraltar, and some of his progeny, through a son of Posidon, Euennor, were the ancestors of the Berber and Tuareg tribes who now live in the mountainous desert regions of the northwest Sahara.
The Berbers and Tuaregs call their ancient ancestor Uenur, which is Euenor, son of Posidon, according to Plato, and the Berber word for water is atl, just as atl meant water to the ancient Mexicans, to the Basques, and to the ancient Dutch, who referred to a now submerged kingdom in the eastern Atlantic called Atland, Water land, now submerged.
And the Berbers and Tuaregs have always called the mountains in the northwestern portion of their realm the Atlas Mountains, without Plato or anybody else telling them what to name them. Atlas was a brother of Uener, as was Gadir/Gades (Cadiz), who the Berber tradition says was Agadir (without Plato telling them), so you can see fabulous corroboration from the remote and secretive desert tribes of northwest Africa for Plato’s account.
And note that mountains and water are related to Atlas in the Berber and Tuareg languages, so he was a king on the mountain, who navigated with great skill, along with his great grandfather Chronos, the Time Man, with whom he navigated the high seas to far-flung locales with the ancient mapping methodology described in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, during the Ice Age, before it ended to submerge their kingdoms.
