BTW: You know that "Atlantis" is an Egyptian loan word meaning "The land that has no name"? :-) It is not a name itself, but was most probably the information Solon could get when asking Egyptian priests what the origin of the sea people was...

Since there is no information at all in Egypt about Platos Atlantis (although Solon should have got his information from there), but there is a lot of boasting about the defeat of the Sea People I am pretty sure that Plato wrote something like a fantasy story including some deformed historic bits.
