Francis Ashton 's The Breaking of the Seals and its follow-up, Alas, That Great Cityare old-fashioned romances in which the heroes are cast backwards in time by mystical means. To save you looking it up, Plato's description of the location of Atlantis is as follows: "In front of the mouth which you Greeks call the pillars of Heracles, there lay an island which was larger than Libya and Asia combined; and it was possible for the travellers of that time to cross from it to the other islands, and from the islands to the whole of the continent over against them which encompasses the real ocean. To the reader, I conclude this article with a quotation from Critias, from the literature of Plato, "There have been, and will be again, many destructions of mankind arising out of many causes; the greatest have been brought about by the agencies of fire and waterand other lesser ones by innumerable other causes.

We incline to the view that the main continent was submerged aboutyears ago, followed by the destruction of the larger remaining islands of Ruta and Daitya, which are mentioned in the Indian Puranas, some 80, years ago. The ancient Greeks were divided as to whether Plato's story was to be taken as history or mere metaphor. One night and two days only shall the Lords of the Dark Face the black magicians live on this patient land. Like the rays of the sun shone the locks of her hair, which were as fine as spiders' webs.

    The Egyptian priests claimed that the Athenians had a forgotten history. The secret is in the "Lost Teachings" book. The map is oriented with south at the top. There is an insufficient amount of evidence to suggest that the legend of Atlantis is more than a myth.
