Where was Atlantis? Plato in his dialogue with Critias gives a great hint (among many). He wrote that the region of Cadiz, Spain, was given to Gades, the twin brother of Atlas, Gades or Gadirus given “the cape of the island facing the Pillars of Hercules,” that is Gibraltar. Atlas (namesake of the Atlantic, the Atlas Mountains, and Atlas books of Maps see article #2 at http://iceagecivilizations.com) was given the circular island city of that Atlantean region now submerged about thirty miles south of Cadiz on the continental shelf, submerged since the end of the ice age, so when really did those legendary kings live?
Plato wrote of the trireme ships and bronze age metallurgy sourced by the rich mining district (the still productive Rio Tinto ore district of the Sierra Morena mountains to the north of the circular city of Atlantis and the atlantean plain), and “sea god” Poseidon, the father of Atlas and Gades, was really the biblical Sidon, son of Canaan, so the biblical timeline fits this scenario, the ice age having ended actually circa 1500 b.c. at the time of the Exodus of the jews out of Egypt, confirmed by the submerged bronze age ruins found in many parts of the world and the catastrophic climate change to deserts now realized to have drastically change the ancient landscape of such as Egypt.
Other hints for the location of Atlantis given by Plato in his dialouge with Critias are that another son of Posidon, Elasippus, was the namesake of ancient Olisippos, now known as Lisbon, Portugal, and son Azaes may well have been the namesake of the Azore islands, so when you link these facts with another son, Mneseas (Menes?), probably the namesake of Menouthis, now submerged along the extinct Canopic branch of the Nile off the coast of Egypt near Alexandria, that the Atlantean empire extended from Gibraltar to Egypt and Italy is proven by archaeological fact.
