I have been perusing the posts on this. The artifact is very interesting in that it seems to be an amalgam of various styles. The spirals look
meso-american but also celtic. The design of the piece itself looks rather Spanish to me and the work at the bottom does indeed resemble Arabic
Although I'm a great believer in Atlantis, I find it hard to believe that this artifact is 12,000 years old, which is what it would have to be if we
go by Plato's dating. Even if we use the alternate theory that somewhere along the line 9,000 was mistaken for 900, that would put it at about 5,000
years old to be in the right time frame. This thing doesn't look like it can really be that ancient.
Lastly, we can't discount ocean currents. Look at what's washed up on the shores of the western U.S. after the Japanese tsunami. This could very
well be from a shipwreck - or something- from the other side of the Atlantic. The gulf current makes a full circle, so no telling how far something
can travel in a few hundred - or few thousand years.
