THE FABLED CITY KNOWN AS ATLANTIS WAS FIRST DESCRIBED IN PLATO'S DIALOGUES, TIMAEUS AND CRITIAS. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT ALL OTHER REFERENCES TO ATLANTIS RELY ON PLATOS'S WRITINGS.

THE ISLAND CIVILIZATION WAS DESCRIBED AS BEING AN UNSTOPPABLE NAVAL POWER CIRCA 9600 B.C. THE ISLAND WAS COMPRISED OF CONCENTRIC RINGS WITH HIGH WALLS COVERED IN BRASS AND TIN. THE ISLAND NATION WAS ALSO DESCRIBED AS BEING A UTOPIC COMMUNITY AND HELD ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY FOR THE TIME.HOWEVER, IN A PERIOD OF A DAY THE ENTIRE ISLAND AND CIVILIZATION WAS SWALLOWED UP BY THE OCEAN AND SANK BENEATH THE WAVES

TODAY IT IS ARGUED WHETHER OR NOT PLATOS ACCOUNT WAS FICTIONAL, THOUGH THAT ARGUEMENT HAS NOT DETERRED THE COUNTLESS SEARCHES AND SPECULATIONS AS TO THE EXACT LOCATION OF THE SUNKEN CONTINENT.
