The origin of the supposedly mysterious Pelasgians of the aegean bronze age, the ancient founders of Athens, and the namesake of the words pelagos and pelagic, meaning sea (because they were great navigators), is really no mystery at all, as they were of the tribe of Peleg, six generations from Noah, and son of Eber, as written in an ancient babylonian geographic fragment, “Pulukku sha Ebiriti,” which means, Peleg who was of Eber, and so, really not strangely, the ancient greek Hecataeus of Miletus wrote that Pelasgus was a descendant of Deucalion, the biblical Noah, the hero of the global flood, with the hebrew and greek versions of the global flood just two of hundreds worldwide, and Deucalion perhaps having been the word for the double lion, who looked before and after the global flood, like the imagery of the double-headed Janus.
The Pelasgoi of Pelasgus, the Peleg of the Bible, built megalithic structures in ancient Greece, but many of which are now submerged on the seafloor at various locations off the coast, off Elafonisos, Astakos, Platygiali, Abdera, and Samothrace, for instance, with many of the structures still on land also attributed to them, such as some of the earliest buildings of the Acropolis at Athens, in concert with the biblical tribe of Javan, who was the greek god Iawan, the namesake of the Ionians, who with the Pelasgians built the great earliest megalithic structures of Greece, many of which are now submerged because the Ice Age ended actually circa 1500 B.C. (the Greek’s “flood of Ogyges”), explaining the clearly bronze age look of the submerged megalithic ruins, also off southern Spain, certainly not from the 10000 B.C. timeframe (as Plato would have us believe), making them very difficult to explain by mainstream nautical archaeologists with their timeline for the end of the Ice Age.
The ancient Assyrians of upper Mesopotamia in the Middle East knew of a great seatrading nation to the west, across the Mediterranean, known to them as the Tarsisi, from southern Spain actually, the biblical Tarshish, later known as Tartessos, the great mining nation of the Sierra Morena Mountains, which was the mining source for the altantean empire, ending when the Ice Age ended and sea level rose, circa 1500 B.C., but the prolific mining continued after that for millennia, up to today, with the ruins of the atlantean empire now submerged off southern Spain at Tarifa, Ceuta, Zahara de Los Atunes, Cadiz, Rota, Chipiona, and Huelva, again proving that Plato’s date was off, as he should have known that the flood of Ogyges, which consumed much of Greece, circa 1500 B.C., was the same flood as that described in his Atlantis account, describing much of Greece having succumbed to the sea then as did Atlantis.
Atlas, of Atlantis, and the Atlantic, was a son of Posidon, who was the biblical Sidon, a son of Canaan (son of Ham/Chronos), and Iberia (Spain) was named after Eber, the father of Peleg, so you can see it really was a small world back then, with Shemites (of Eber and Peleg), and Japhethites (of Javan and Tarshish), and Hamites (of Canaan and Sidon) vying for stakes in the western Mediterranean and eastern Atlantic during the Ice Age, navigating by the simple methodology explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, the old chaldean numbering system, common also to the Egyptians, who surveyed the dimensions of the Great Pyramid of Giza by the wobble rate of the earth’s axis, 72 years/degree.
