The City of Atlantis, west of Gibraltar, also known as the City of Posidon, was a concentric canal ringed port complex, five miles from the sea, connected to it by a ship canal, according to Plato, and the earliest fortifications and mining operations of southern Spain are commonly attributed to the Phoenicians, who were Canaanites, circa 2000 B.C., so should we not consider those seafarers to have been the Atlanteans of southern Spain and Morocoo, as Plato’s bronze age Atlantis was misdated by the egyptian priests?
And since the flood of Ogyges of ancient greek lore which consumed much of Greece, apparently the same flood of the time of the end of Atlantis, occurred circa 1500 B.C. (when Ogyges is acknowleged to have lived), it’s clear that this timeframe explains the unexplainable for mainstream scientists, the presence of hundreds of clearly bronze age megalithic and brick ruins of cities now on the shallow seafloor in many parts of the world (including about ten sites in the Gibraltar region), demonstrating that the Ice Age ended much later than popularly advertised, at the time when vast swaths of middle latitude geography began to become desert.
So circa 1000 B.C., after the turmoil and migrations because of the drastic climate change and great sea level rise when the Ice Age ended, the Phoenicians built Carthage, with a circular port facility like Atlantis, on the big promontory of the coast of Tunisia, with Sicily across the water just a hundred miles away, where the Mediterranean is quite narrow, but was only about fifty miles wide during the Ice Age, when the now submerged ruins northwest off Gozo, Malta, were near the ice age shoreline of the Mediterranean. These ruins of a temple, looking like the huge megalithic temples on land there on Malta, are not discussed nor explored much by mainstream scientists, as are not the other submerged ruins found in hundreds of locations elsewhere, including off Egypt, Lebanon, Greece, as well as Spain and Morocco, because bronze age megalithic ruins submerged on the seafloor do not match their Ice Age timeline.
The Romans defeated the Carthaginians, the greatest seafarers of that time, circa 200 B.C., and they were associated with the Mauri, the namesake of the Mauritania, and Morocco, the land of the ancient Formoriachi, known as the Moors, who obviously, were Canaanites from bronze age Lebanon (Laban), who had sailed west to help build the Atlantean Empire, in the shadow of the mineral rich Sierra Morena mountains of southern Spain, the mountain range which Plato said shielded Atlantis from cold north winds.
And Tarshish, a great grandson of Japheth, was also a player in early Atlantis, having been the namesake of what the Romans would later call Tartessos, now Seville, in the mining district of the Sierra Morenas, by far the richest metal mining area in the ancient world; and Atlas, a son of Posidon/Sidon (who was a son of Canaan) is the namesake of the Atlas mountains, with our World Atlas maps having been named after his work, as carried out by the astronomical mapping method explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.
