Trouble is, a deglaciated Antarctica looks nothing like a glaciated one, and Antarctica has been glaciated for millions of years. And geologically recently was more glaciated than today.

There may be a case for arguing a glaciated Antarctica was mapped earlier than thought, but that is all. I see no reason to suppose it was Plato's fictional Atlanteans? Even if they existed why would they map a frigid Antarctica before declaring war on Athens and being defeated? Surely any such mapping would more likely have been carried out by peoples more advanced in technology than the Bronze Age Atlanteans?

Extraordinary claims require at least some evidence.
