Lost Atlantis-part 3 cont. Bryant, By E. Sykes

In Solon story, we reach the point of where the Younger Critias says: "Yet, before proceeding further with the narration, I ought to warn you (his Athenian audience) that you should not be surprised if you hear Hellenic names given to foreigners. I will give you the reason for this. Solon, who planned a poem of this story, made an inquiry into meaning of the names given him and learned that the early Egyptians in writing them down (in hieratic or in hieroglyphs) had translated them into their own language and he, Solon, recovered the meaning of the several names ( that is , in Atlantean, shewing therefore that at that early epoch of the world's history proper or surnames were given to persons, places and perhaps to things in general on account of some characteristic action, habit, quality or environment) and re-translated them and copied them over again in our language (Archaic Attic Greek-which was still in use at the time of Solon, according to Taylor. My great-grandfather Dropidas had the original writing (Solon's manuscript) which is still in my possession (470-400 B.C.) and was carefully studied by me when a child." The processes of translation, re-translation and transcription thus involved must have been complicated and unwieldy. Noted before the Greeks received Poseidon religion from Libyans. R. Brown asserts etymological grounds Poseidon is to be equated to Noah. Bellamy translates Poseidon by "the one who surges along". It is to be regretted that the original Atlantean names, proper and otherwise, recorded by the Egyptian Priests were not simply transliterated into hieratic

or hieroglyphic writing. "Therefore," Critias continues, "if you (Socrates and his fellow-listeners) hear names such as are used in this country, you must not be surprised, for I have told you the reason." The layering of the mythic quality in Greek would be its own primitive history, with only portions to the actual atlantean meanings or names. Critias the Younger continues about Poseidon having a part of Atlantis and having a mortal woman for a wife beget children, his father was Kronos who destroys Poseidon in a metaphorical sense i.e. destroyed all of Poseidon's Kingdom. In addition of his dominion over all the seas, oceans, and water elsewhere. So, all destruction's of tidal and flooding onto lands and islands has been attributed to Poseidon's lost domain. Hellenic proper name is Po-Seidon, as possibly Asiatic origin, being related to Phi-Sheidon, the Mouth of Sidon, the famous seaport of the earliest Phoenicians, a city traced back to 2,700 B.C. His wife Amphi-Trite, the female symbol or triton, or in other terms, the first Merwoman, or Queen of the Mermaids referred to in fairy mythology. She was daughter of Oceanus, which seals (animal) was very prolific in symbolism in Mediterranean area with the Phocea-'seals' Coins, the city borrowed the Phoca name Greek for 'Seals'. The Lake Tritons, or Seals formed enormous gulf separating the island- or perhaps the peninsula- or North West Africa from Libya and Western Egypt.

The likeness of seals and humans brought about the mythology of mermaids. This implies ancient sea-faring traders, and harpooners made up coastal Atlantis. Critias continues that on that island's side toward the sea was a great plain, which near the center of Island at five miles inward were not very large mountains. On this mountain dwelt a earth born primeval men of that land, whose name was Evenor or Euanor. He had a wife named Leucippe and only child was Cleito. These are names given as the oldest Attic Greek names to atlanteans, or aboriginal people of Atlantis. Breaking through Greek translations of Atlantean name meanings (not just words) Evanor or Euanor, can be constructed as 'the Man of God' like Adam. In primeval Atlantean aboriginal language, we find the root Hu, a very ancient Cymric or Cimmerian concept of deity, showing that this particular name for God was carried from the south-west of the globe almost due east by migration: in vastly later ages the name Hu seems to have been carried to the British Isles by the ancestors to the Druids and figures prominently in the most ancient legends. In a Cymric legend of the Deluge, which was caused by the Addanc, a mythical monster, making the Lake of Waters (Llyon Lion) overflow, it was Hu Gaderam whose oxen dragged the monster from the waters and stopped the disaster. It was from this Deluge that Dwy Van and Dwy Vach escaped in the Neyydd Nav Neivon, the Celtic Ark. The Addanc appears to be similar to the Punic Hayagriva. Hu Gaderan may actually have been a pre-Celtic culture hero. The Triads refer to him as "A Bull dwelling in a sacred stall". The name of the first Atlantean Woman, Luecippe, can be rendered english as a 'the luminous mare'. A nymph named Leuce appears as one of the numerous oceanides or priestess of oceanus, and hence related to Amphitrite, or the wife of Poseidon. This of course reminds us of sea-horses and we know from Greek mythology that the horse was first produced by Poseidon's striking the earth with his trident during his dispute with Athene, his niece, as to who should name the newly-formed settlement that was the capital of Cecropia. She in turn produced the olive-tree and thus and thus gained the victory, and her name was given to the city. All this may refer to a religious or other quarrel in which land and water symbolise the opposing factors and the defeated, having to flee to their galleys, leave their cavalry behind. This suggests that the Atlanteans may have introduced the horse into Europe. It is likely that Atlantis was the original place for the horse which at that time the region called Barbary, or North West Africa, was the most easterly geographical division. Cleito, or Clito, which no son occurs in the Atlantean Trinity, has many prefixes in several names of persons and places. She and her family were the progenitors of the Atlanteans. Her after father and mother died was when Poseidon married her, and it was he who built the encircling citadel in honor of her, which he may have copied from the original Atlantis port city? For like Adam, the Poseidon of Solon's narrative is the personification of a race and not an individual being. Poseidon also brought up under the earth the warm and cold springs to the center of the island. He beget five pairs of twins and dividing the kingdom in 10 parts which he gave his eldest the main citadel and adjacent lands that was his mothers and made him the main king over the rest. The others were made princes to rule over other lands. Atlas was the eldest and before he was born the central citadel area was not the only empire kingdom it extended from western and southern coastal regions of Portugal from the neighborhood of the present site of Lisbon southwards and incorporated parts of Spain as far south as and including the country around Cadiz: the present north-western parts of Africa as far eastwards as the then Tunisian shore of the Mediterranean, overlooking Lake Tritonis, or present Gulf of Gabes, Tripoli and Sidra; in all likelihood the extreme southwest corner of England, and, as one writer, Comyns Beaument has suggested, the whole peninsula of Cornwall, Devon and Somerset, with Bath as its local capital and seaport, and the present island groups of the Azores, Madeiras, Canaries, and Cape Verde. Other writers from felt the kingdom also stretched from Morocco south to coasts now lying opposite of Cape Verde. The real time taken to build the kingdoms may have taken at least into a millenia. The location of Cleito's orignal location may have been south of the Atlas Mountain Range and on the shores of the Ocean which occupied what is now the Sahara Desert. This may have been what was the Terra Siriadica of antiquity in which at some unknown time the Siriadic columns were errected, according to Josephus, and Euseubius with referances made by Paul Hoffman). In Algeria, many years ago, I was assured by certain Marabouts that an immense subterranean lake lies under this desert at a depth varying from 150 to 1200 feet, and what is more, fish live and breed in these underground waters and even rivers. It would be interesting to see what would happen if the artesian wells, it might well lead to the emergence of a new and fruitful land.

When this underground lake use to wash the southern and eastern shores of the Atlas Range, the cities, fishing villages and ports which galleys may have ported now no longer exists. King Atlas may have had his kingdom lay near north-west Africa at a time when the Straits of Gibraltar did not exist.

Webmaster Note- If we take Poseidon's name we will find that Poseidia was a variation and gives a clue that it is not directly broken as Po-Seidon, or Sidon as if it were Set and On, or Osiris. Po itself means Sea-Side in meaning thus Po='Side' of a mouth not the mouth itself which explains why the name would include a Bay terminology in the first instance before the 'mouth' of a river. If Po- is self-explanatory then Seid-On or Sei-Tun are the possible other form, and a name like Zatuon would be similar. This may indicate the hard name of Djet-On or Zjet then Seid as the 'Pillar of Osiris' not Hercules. For the Sjed festival held its name closely to Djed 'Pillar' see. The effect is a layer that should look like this:

Poseid-Dun 'Divine (souls) Hill' Archaic Greek-Egyptian

Possido, -sidere,-sedi, sedeo or 'take seize, have power over sea, sit or seat' Roman-Lat.

Praecedo, -cedere, Praeduco, -praedico or'to go before','construct before',before others

(Po)-Suti-hintiu, or 'Underworld Seat' is Etruscan borrowed from Basque 'Seat of Hendiu, or Hondu' i.e. "Western Horizon-Mountain" of the dead sun god gone to underworld.

Fossa, 'divine trench' feminized from Fodo? Celtic

Bossit, Bassit, Bosset is also Egyptian for Basset or Bast, the Cat.

Phocea-d as a Greek Seal name clan.

The conclusion is that a statement once made this word, 'a divine seat (soul's authority) on a great hill be-side the sea on the Western Horizon has gone into the Underworld with the lost older Sun god'.

The implication that it was constructed or made before Greece kingdom is clear, and that even Italy's Poseidonis Port on the West Coast is by the 'Sea-Side' with Basque place names says that it was far west of that where it happened even beyond Spain?

There is one last weird association found in Egyptian Bu or Pu means 'Seat' and if we give literal Seid for 'Seat' it is a replication one Egyptian the other Greek. This means the 'Sea' in Seid has been slammed into the meaning for seat, and involves a dual note or plural form. Which may explain the double-side-d Crete like ax, Po-ss-id, in a sense prince twin's kingdom a very old concept and replaced the Triton (female) into male. This, however, is much latter an effect in language, but may keep the more ancient meaning intact. The internal geographic meaning is 'Bay-Side Town' and now we cannot disregard that the Basque city of Bay-ona (Bay of Osiris) is not the same as Poseidon of the Greek's a big Seal hunter's town!!! In this case Poseidon may end up being in a more religious form the "(Divine) Seat of On or Osiris", or like Busiris is to Egypt and Bast. No matter, it does represent one of the oldest names played with once in reverence and latter in pun. We can see a whole myth was built into this name, and its older name for this King had to originally do with his 'Grove of Trees, or flowers' he pruned that went into the sea with the seals, I call P-ossha-nti-lan and a variation on Atlantis own name.
