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 LakeTritons, 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 HuGaderam whose oxen dragged the monster from the waters and
stopped the disaster. It was from this Deluge that Dwy
Van and DwyVach escaped in
the NeyyddNavNeivon, the Celtic Ark.
The Addanc appears to be similar to the Punic Hayagriva. HuGaderan
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, ComynsBeaument 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'sorignal
location may have been south of the AtlasMountain Range and on the shores of
the Ocean which occupied what is now the SaharaDesert.
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
When this underground lake use to wash the southern
and eastern shores of the AtlasRange, 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:
Possido, -sidere,-sedi, sedeo or 'take seize, have power over sea, sit or seat'
Praeduco, -praedicoor'to go before','constructbefore',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
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-SideTown' 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.
