The 'Lost Atlantis' of G. I. Bryant, By Egerton Sykes

This is based on the outline of the manuscript works salvaged after Bryant's home was destroyed in the Middle East during WW2, which E. Sykes recovered.

The work is focused primarily on not occult, but Plato period sources. Solon of 569 B.C. spoke to priests Sonchis, of the Temple of Neith in Sais, and Psenuphis Priest of Ra at Heliopolis. They both speak of Neith and Athena as the same goddess between Greece and Egypt. Egypt's 'Nth' and Greek's 'Thn' had bow and arrow in one goddess's hand and the other goddess had a shield and spear. Athens City was founded thousands of years before Sais was in Egypt according to the priests. The Greek Legend of Athena according to the Greek Mythology came from Libya around the Lake Tritonis area along with the Poseidon Myths. The Atlanteans conquered Egypt, and the Middle East by Sea invasion like the Greek invasion. The statement to Solon from Priest Sonchis that ", for in those days (c. 9,600 B.C.) the Atlantic was navigable", and implies that in Sonchis days (569 B.C.) the Atlantic as according to the Phoenicians was poorly navigable because of the weeds (Field of Reeds), and shallows as related to the Sargasso Sea and just outside of the Straits of Gibraltar. The Island was described as larger then Libya and Asia (or their known world) i.e. North Africa to Egypt to the lands of Persia and southward to almost Ethiopia, or Congo. It is clear the description refers to just outside and not far from the Straits (described as a harbor in the Straits immediately across from Atlantis) with another adjacent continent beyond that of Atlantis, called modernly America. Thus, the Egyptians and the Greeks knew of this around 9,600 B.C.. One could think it refers to the other 'outer' islands as Cape Verde, Maderia, or Canaries and included across Lake Tritonis (Minor) in the Sahara. But, America is more preferred. The places the Atlanteans conquered included the region of the Berbers (often thought to be descendants from them)original inhabitants of North-West Africa and beyond Europe they took Tyrrhenia kingdom as well. They Berbers as considered white in color are at first glance not quite the Guanches of Canaries ancient people, but there is a tale they were once more white then their reddish bronze color later formed. In regards to Tyrrhenia, Montaigne considered this historical name was related to present day Tuscany, and implied the Caribs in the West Indies on the American side maybe relatives to the Guanches in the Canaries. Webmaster note-"Some Caribs were noted with Blue Eyes before Columbus arrival to the New World as well as the Caloosa of Southern Florida in Ponce De Leon's day." There are ancient seaports South of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and Algeria. Thus, the territories of Mauretania, Numidia, Tunis, Tripoli, Braca and Libya proper as far east as the Libyan Oases had fallen in Atlantean hands. By 9,600 B.C. the Atlantean control became a monstrous octopus, its body formed the lost island and the tentacles reaching northwards to England's Lost land of Lyonesse in the due south west of Britain beyond Cornwall. South as far as the Sargasso Sea; east into the Mediterranean on both north and south shores including the Balearic islands, Sardinia, and the Maltese archipelago; and west towards Florida, Central America, and North West Brazil. They may have controlled parts of the N. American Seaboard, and in Louisiana region southern states. Geology teaches us that at one time the Yucatan had a land bridge stretching from Cuba and Carribean islands which formed

A solid arc into Venezuela enclosing a fertile land. Le Plongeon 50 years before was coming to a conclusion simaler to this. (Webmaster Note)-The recent find off the coast of Cuba of a series of Walls and a city may confirm this bridge was partially intact around the 2,500 to 10,000 B.C. period. Le Plongeon also called the area beyond the Yucatan as the Maya Kingdom of Mu not to be confused with Lemuria, for it is more not just a Pacific influence by name but the 'Water' of Life by reference which the Egyptians borrowed as Mu-Ankh. The 'Water of Life' and its great stag or female deer's kingdom was about the grazing in those lands by the creature before it lost its land bridge. The outline of a Great Deer is noted with the Stag Horns as the Gulf of Mexico, and the Island Caribbean curvature as its hindquarter with its head facing Yucatan, and down to Honduras. The reason it is called, Yucatan is because it refers to female deer's weeping over the lost stag's kingdom to the Caribbean Sea. This is the mystery that is deepened when prehistoric stag deer's with that great of a horn (Gulf of Mexico) disappeared some 10,000 years ago or more!

Chapter Two-

In referance to the Atlanteans fighting Athens in first a indecisive sea battle, were finally defeated by the Greeks in a land battle. The Greeks then went freed people in other lands from the Atlanteans this according to Sonchis in Sais, Egypt. In a work now lost, by Marcus Terentius Varro, a distinguished Roman writer, tells of a naval battle which once occurred off Sardinia. In this battle, the Guanches in the Canary Islands defeated Phorcys, King of Sardinia. Might there perhaps be some confusion of the Guanches with the men of Carthage, who indeed conquer Sardinia and were its masters until expelled by the Romans? It is difficult to decide whether this engagement off this Island was not really one of the events in the last invasion of Europe by the Atlanteans. Mummies were practiced in the Canaries and very similar to the Egyptians (webmaster note-and had some characteristics of the Coastal Peru-Chile 9,000 B.C. complex in recent finds) along its shores and caves. Thus a link existed between the Egyptians, Guanches of the Canaries, and the Peruvians halfway across the globe. (Webmaster Note- There is some evidence that the Gobi Desert beyond Armenia may yet yield mummies if it was even a Noahetic practice by a Basque like culture?) Le Plongeon in his atlantis book noted the sandals on the Chicheu Itza Statue is the same as the ones found on the Gaunches mummies feet? In regards to the Guanches, Aelian

Tells us that Theopomos of chios related that once ten million of them, coming from a city called 'Machimos' or (The Warlike, or Match-Mes like the word Mismatch), descended suddenly onto Europe. They first went to the north but, perhaps dissatisfied with the climate, they then made their way south, gradually overrunning the coasts and Mediterranean. We are not sure the Guanches are the actual atlanteans with their reddish gold color (metallic interests). There may also be some error in the machimos name for it is a Greek adaptation of the older name, and the source of Theopompos

Is still unknown. But, he does refer to creatures in this atlantis that can be no less elephants. No where do other records exist about the Balaeric, Corsica, Sicily, and Maltese Islands that tell about this invasion and conquest. M. Gattefosse has assured us that Malta contains remains of an atlantean character, and if 'Cyclopian' be the same as Atlantean, then he is correct. These islands have always been a very old stopping ground in maritime trade and have showed most of the successive influences. Le Plongeon is still considered the oldest theorist on the Egyptian and Mayan connection to Atlantis. The Troano Codex, a copy is in the madrid museum, was discovered by Brasseur de Bourbourg in Spain in the possession of Don Juan Tro Y Ortelano, then professor of Paleography in Madrid. Brasseur was struck by the similarities of the hieroglyphs on the strip of bark, 14 feet and 9 inches, and those on the Mayan monuments of Copan and Palenque in Central America, and assumed it to be the Mayan record of the sinking of the land of MU, which must refer to the sinking of Atlantis. Le Plongeon's rendering of the Troano Codex runs as follows: "The Year…on the eleventh Muluc in the Month of Zuc, there occurred a terrible earthquakes which continued without intermission the thriteenth Chuen. The country of the hills of mud, the Land of Mu, was sacrificed. Being twice upheaved, it suddenly disappeared during the night, the basin being continually shaken by volcanic forces. Being confined, these caused the land to sink and rise several times and in various places. At last the surface gave way and the ten countries were torn asunder and scattered in fragments: unable to withstand the force of the convulsions, they sank with their sixty four million inhabitants, eight thousand and sixty years before the writing of this book."

Webmaster note- The date of writing the book since our Mayans begin recording on a large scale at 1,000 B.C. (if this was correct) would be 9,060 B.C., yet Plato says 9,600 B.C. with 540 years difference we may have to take back to the Mayas account. 1,540 B.C. marks the period when that book story was first written and lands in a period when the Hyksos began to invade Egypt. This does not finish the problem of the deluge 2,000 years further back Cayce claims at 11,600 B.C., which would put this Mayan work at 3,540 B.C. before the 1st Dynasty of Egypt. It would seem the earthquakes lasted 7 and a half months ending in the early summer and the memory is preserved indirectly in a word in Egypt of Sekhet as 'Field', and Kuon or 'Dog' for month terminology names? There is however the Muluc Month which is a Milky Way name, and is it possible that the real word connection is Ochuen, or Ochema Seku or Zuc i.e. Egyptian for 'The Big Dipper', and Bear Polar Constellation on the Milky Way preserved in month names? If this is the case they are implying a Pole Movement observed?

Paul Schliemann stated that in one of the Tibetan temples of Llasa there existed a record, which stated:

"When the Star Bal fell on the place where there is now only sea and sky, the Seven Cities with their Golden Gates and Transparent Temples quivered and shook like the leaves in a storm. And, behold a flood of fire and smoke arose from the palaces. Agony and cries the multitude filled the air. They sought refuge in their temples and citadels. And the wise Mu, the hieratic of Ra-Mu, arose and said to them: "Did I not predict all this?" And the women and the men in their precious stones and shinning garments lamented: "Mu, save us." And Mu replied: "You shall die together with slaves and your riches, and from your ashes shall arise new nations. If they forgot that they are superior not because of what they put on but of what they put out, the same lot will befall them." Flame and smoke choked the words of Mu. The land and its inhabitants was torn to pieces and swallowed by the depths. Though not directly referred to as Atlantis, the story may have been added or taken from via survivors who moved past Egypt and became incorporated. This may explain Plato's description of Atlantis's left over mud, and since the Atlantic is oscillating at its depths future generations may see it rise again. It is another mystery why Carthage Sea ports is not mentioned by the Egyptians to Solon which appeared around 869 B.C.. Yet Herodotus in his whole nine books does not mention Rome. The Egyptian Priest to Solon mentions not one but many time's great floods have occurred in the nine thousand years.
