Atlanteotl

Atlanteotl was one of several names used to describe the Olmecs who were claimed by both the Maya and Toltecs as their Ancestors.

Gene Matlock suggests that the name means ‘Gods of/by/from/ in the waters’. He also claims that the Aztecs referred to the Spanish invaders as Atlanteotl, thinking that they had come from their ancient homeland.     Frank Joseph lists Atlanteotl as an Aztec water-god similar to Atlas.
