Rainer Krämer is a German writer who has produced a number of articles on a variety of historical subjects and is the author of Atlantis: Das Rätsel des Aristokles (Atlantis: The Riddle of Aristokles) , using Plato’s real name ‘Aristocles’ in the title. This slender offering got lukewarm reviews(a). Originally published in 2009 it was later (2011) revised with an expanded section on Tartessos. Kramer discusses a small number of Atlantis theories – The Sea Peoples, Santorini, Troy and Tartessos.
Aristocles was in fact the original name given to Plato. ‘Plato’ being just a nickname meaning broad-shouldered that probably arose during his early wrestling career, which included participation in the Olympic Games in his youth.
