There's a parallel between tales of Hanno and Plato's Atlantis tales, in that Hanno was often remarked as sailing around the Pillars of Heracles. (I only mention that for those Atlantis searchers who choose to interpret "Pillars of Heracles" as locations other than Gibraltar).
The Greek title is "Periplus of Hanno", the Greek translation of a Punic inscription. Hanno describes a number of things pertaining to his exploration of Africa, which the Greeks find impossible to believe, such as "hairy women", or the sun rising in the northern sky (which interpreters think indicate he sailed as far as Cape Palmas, past Sierra Leone).
