Ephorus (t)

Ephorus (c.400-330) was a respected Greek historian from Cyme (ancient Phriconis) in northwest Turkey. He told us that the capital of Tartessos was two day’s travel from the Pillars of Heracles and more importantly that a Tartessos continued as a trading centre, dealing in metals, as late as the 4th century BC, which is after Solon’s visit to Egypt. Since Atlantis was submerged hundreds if not thousands of years before Solon lived, the Tartessos referred to by Ephorus cannot be Atlantis!

Ephorus is also the name of anti-plagiarism software.
