Cornarius, Janus (t)

Janus Cornarius (Johannes Hainpol)(1500-1558) was a humanist and a gifted philologist, who in 1561 had published posthumously, a Latin translation from the Greek of the complete works Cornariusof Plato under the snappy title of Platonis Atheniensis, philosophi summi ac penitus divini opera (in latinam vertit Cornario). Latin scholars can now download a free ebook copy online(a).

It is proposed that Cornarius used different sources to those of Ficino, but I am not aware that this has created any specific difficulties for or has shed any additional light on the Atlantis debates.
