Thanks for the link Logarock. That was a cool reading.
I thought the part about the relationship between the Gorgons, Amazons and Atlanteans to be a real eye opener. Plato's Atlantis says that the women
went into battle just like the men. The Amazons were purely women warriors. I believe the character we have come to know as Athena really came from
these warrior like women.
Diodorus says this interesting statement.
"The story is also told that the marsh Tritonis disappeared from sight in the course of an earthquake, when those parts of it which lay towards the
ocean were torn asunder."
Tritonis marsh was on a large island called Hespera.
The islands of the Hesperides are thought to be somewhere in the Atlantic.
I never knew about the writings of Diodorus Siculus.
