Aucler, Paul (L)

Paul Aucler (1865-1915) was a French archaeologist who published a reconstruction of ancient Carthage in 1899. The similarity of the layout he presented has been commented on for its similarity with Plato’s description of the capital city of Atlantis. Robert Stacy-Judd, a prominent diffusionist, was one such commentator, who was not suggesting that Carthage was the location of Atlantis, but when a similar layout was to be found at Tenochtitlan (Mexico City) and elsewhere, it, assording to him, seemed to imply a common source of inspiration – Atlantis!
