Philo of Alexandria (L)
Philo of Alexandria (20 BC-50 AD) also known as Philo the Jew, was a philosopher based in Alexandria. He was a firm supporter of the reality of Atlantis’ existence. He wrote on the subject in his On the Eternity of the Earth[1423.v.141](a) where he is thought by some to be quoting Theophrastus, Aristotle’s successor. This view is held by Thorwald C. Franke[0880.131] and J. V. Luce in Atlantis: Fact or Fiction[0522.51].
