An A-Z Guide To The Search For Plato's Atlantis

Recent Updates


Chryse was the name given to an island near Lemnos in the Aegean Sea. It is referred to by Pausanias, Sophocles and Homer. It is named after its patron goddess Chryse and was famed for its temple to Apollo. J.D. Brady dates its demise as 569 BC following earthquakes and tsunamis. However, during the Third Mithridatic War (75-63 BC) there is a record of an ambush there. Today it is claimed that an underwater feature known as the Kharos Bank is the remains of Chryse.

J.D.Brady also claims that Chryse is the same as the Tyrus referred to by Ezekiel (27.3) which in turn he has identified as Atlantis.
