If a landmass currently underwater, was mapped in ancient times, then that means that it was once above water.
If it was above water and right where Plato said Atlantis was, then it would have to be called Atlantis.
Athanasius Kircher, a founder of Egyptology, found a map in the Vatican. This map was created in Egypt and brought to Italy by the Romans sometime around 30 BCE. The Egyptians considered southern Egypt to be Upper Egypt, and drew their maps accordingly, with South being up. Kircher redrew the map just the way it was and placed America on one side as reference. This is the map he published in 1669:
Once the sea floor was charted in the modern age, no one thought the map was real, but that was because they were looking for a continent. If the outer edge of the map was drawn to show location ONLY, then the size of the island would not be misleading. Solon first heard of Atlantis from an Egyptian priest while visiting Egypt. If the priest had shown him the map, Solon could easily think Atlantis was bigger than Libya and Asia. And Plato never called Atlantis a continent; he called it a large island.
Part of Plato's description of the island was of a rectangle in nature. It consisted of a level plain surrounded by mountains on all sides, except the southern side. The mountains were particularly high on the north side; "the entire region rose sheer out of the sea to a great height. The perimeter of the rectangle received rivers that streamed down from the mountains. Even though the rectangle was surrounded by mountains, it was a smooth plain, whereas the mountains stretched as far as the sea."As it looks like rivers lead into lakes, this is a good description for what you are about to see.
Athanasius Kircher's map meets Google Earth
Coincidence you say?
The Location is in the same place, just west of the Pillars of Hercules and in the ocean named after it
5 matching angles and lengths, all in the same place
Arrowhead "nick" in the same place
Mountain [city] in the same place. [This can be seen in video]
3 river channels in the same place
2 smaller islands
3 rivers cannot be seen, and 2 islands are in the wrong spot, though still on the correct side. 13 coincidences out of 18 do not make a coincidence. 13 coincidences equal a fairly accurate representation.
Of course some of you will disagree because you have been arguing against Atlantis for years and you do not want to stop now. Some of you do not want it to be real. But 13 coincidences do not equal a Coincidence. Or luck.
Circles... did you say circles?
If we are talking about a rise in ocean water, then this was not the only island there, in fact there is a whole chain that would have been above water, nearly stretching the length of Portugal. And 2 of these islands would have been roughly the same size as this one. And yes, there be circles there.
