According to the legend of Atlantis, it was Solon who heard it from the Egyptians. I think therefore that the search should begin with Egyptian
sources. Too often we hear of Thera, which was well known to the Greeks as well as the Pillars of Hercules. Why do they insist on looking at Greek
sources when the story obviously comes from Egypt?
So I propose looking for Egyptian sources and the main point of where the location was beyond the Pillars of Hercules. The Greeks are the ones who
called Gibraltar that name, but suppose for a moment it was not the place the Egyptians were talking about. So here is what I think...
Hercules was the Romanized name for Heracles as the Greeks knew him, but he was known as Heryshaf to the Egyptians.
In Egyptian mythology,
Heryshaf, or Hershef, (Egyptian Ḥry-š=f "He who is on his lake"), transcribed in Greek as Harsaphes (Ἁρσαφής) was an ancient ram-god whose
cult was centered in Herakleopolis Magna (now Ihnasiyyah al-Madinah). He was identified with Ra and Osiris in Egyptian mythology, and to Heracles in
Greek mythology. The identification with Heracles may be related to the fact that in later times his name was sometimes reanalysed as Ḥry-šf.t "He
who is over strength." One of his titles was “Ruler of the Riverbanks.” Heryshaf was a creator and fertility god who was born from the primeval
waters. He was pictured as a man with the head of a ram, or as a ram.
The Egyptian city identified with him is called Ihnasiyyah al-Madinah
And because he is associated with Ra and Osiris, could it be the temple of Osiris may be the pillars they were referring to? And what is even more
interesting is that at the Temple of Osiris at Abydos is the site of the pharoah's helicopter.
Could it be the pharaoh's helicopter stele at Abydos is a retelling of the technology of Atlantis? And because Atlantis is the Greek name, what could
the Egyptian name be for it? Perhaps it is not in the Mediterranean Sea at all, it could be part of the Indian Ocean? Perhaps it was merely a
misunderstanding of the interpreters of the ancient legend. Look for Egyptian sources, that is where the story originates.
