Just wondering, has anyone heard of the following Ancient/Lost Cities:
Nimrol (a buried city in Egypt)
Ochunini (another buried city in Egypt)
...and the following seven states of Atlantis:
Trigas (also known as Poseidon)
Talenos (later called Astroeth)

The only shred of evidence we have of an Atlantis even existing is predicated from Plato's Kritas,
and though he mentions that the Atlanteans did trade
Lost antlantean cities in egypt are very improbable because the Egyptians faught a documented war against an invading sea people who were fleeing their sunken home land, these sea people being presumably Atlanteans.
I think its best if we think of Atlantis as any other Bronze Age civilization who may have been adept sea farers more so then their egyptian, greek, and trojan counterparts.

I've read the dialogue many times, and I do not recall a claim of Atlantis ruling Egypt.
Do a google search on Atlantis Altiplano. Read it, then see if you disagree
All these and their descendants for many generations were the inhabitants and rulers of divers islands in the open sea; and also, as has been already said, they held sway in our direction over the country within the Pillars as far as Egypt and Tyrrhenia.

Maybe it stopped at Egypt?
Suppose that it was 900 years before, not 9000. I have to go right now, so could somebody else tell us what was going on in Egypt around 1800 BC, give or take 100 years?

It just came to me... Gades is supposed to be named for an Atlantean king, but it was actually a colony of Tyre.
Why include any mention of athens if it was just a 'fairy tale'? And one can find other problems with this idea. None of that tho supports the idea that it was an actual place.
