Phonics, sounding out words by their spellings, is what our kids hopefully learn in the public schools, and that ancient name comes from the famed phoenician Phoeniusa, obviously namesake of the ancient seafaring Phoenicians too, who brought their alphabet to Greece, credited to have been brought there by Phoeniusa’s brother Cadmus who established Thebes in Greece to greatness circa 1400 b.c., their sister Europa having been the namesake of Europe.
Of course before that time, the mariners of Canaan (who was a son of Ham) were called the Sidonians, Sidon having been a son of Canaan, his port city of their homeland now submerged off the coast of Lebanon about sixty miles southwest of Beruit, those submerged ruins twenty miles south of the submerged ice age ruins of Yarmuta, which disappeared from the pages of history along with old Sidon circa 1400 b.c., when the sea level had risen to submerge the port cities worldwide, obviously proving that the ice age ended much later than we are commonly being told.
Sidon was a sea god to the Greeks, and the Atlanteans too, ice age rivals, detailed by Plato in Critias and Timaeus, Sidon known as Posidon, deified because he lived so long, outliving his grandchildren for instance, as was the case with the progeny of Noah in the generations immediately after Noah’s Flood, during the ice age, when lifespans decreased dramatically within several generations, as detailed in the book of Genesis, real history for sure, so tell your friends.
One of the ten sons of Sidon listed by Plato was Atlas, namesake of Atlantis, and Sidon’s name is memorialized with the name of the town Medina Sidona in southern Spain, the heartland of the Atlantean Empire, in the shadow of the Atlas mountains, so considering that the ice age actually ended circa 1500 b.c., it’s obvious that greater Atlantis was a coastal empire, as Plato clearly stated, having extended inside the Pillars of Hercules (Gibraltar) all the way to Libya and Italy (Tyrrhenian Sea), and outside Gibraltar as well (up to the tin mines of Cornwall).
