Although he wrote of Atlantis (Solon32.1-2) as if an historical fact, he does imply that Plato embellished the basic story. In the same passage, he laments the fact that Plato died before finishing Critias. Plutarch also recorded that Solon learned the story of Atlantis from Psenophis of Heliopolis and Sonchis of Sais (Solon 26.1). This additional information has clearly added to the credibility of Plato’s narrative.
He alsomentions Saturnia as being around five days sailing west of Britain and added that westwards from that island, there were the three islands to where proud and warlike men used to come from the continent beyond the islands, in order to offer sacrifice to the gods of the ocean. Commentators have seen this as a possible reference to Atlantis or even America.
