Cecrops

Cecrops was, according to tradition, reputed to have been the first king of Athens and is referredCecrops to by Plato along with Erechtheus, Erichthonius and Erisichthon (Crit.110a). He is usually depicted as a man with a serpent’s tail. Eusebius of Caearea placed his reign between 1556 and 1506 BC, which if verifiable would provide a possible ‘anchor’ for arriving at a credible date for the destruction of Atlantis.

The existence of Cecrops as a real person who reigned over Athens during the 2nd millennium BC is given further support by the Parian Marble.
