Homer 8th century. B.C. one of the most important Greek writers of antiquity wrote the epic poems the Iliad, in which it comes to the long-lasting war between Troy and Greece, and the Odyssey, in which the 10-year-old travels and wanderings of the hero Odysseus to be treated. since it is a new form of mythology is, in the man and not God is the focus, refers to these works as myths of the noble religion. omer says in his odyssey from the island of the Phaeacians the Sharia was this kingdom has incredible similarities with Atlantis. To me it seems as if there Odysseus times makes a little trip to Atlantis. That’s why I gave you worked out the comparisons of the myth:
|ATLANTIS – Plato
||Sharia – Homer
|Atlas – King
||Alcinous – King

Also if the Phaeacians story is not the first Atlantic story, then I know not to help me. In any case, it is clear Scheria is no longer vorfindbares Atlantic coast, which is very close to the Atlantis report.
It should be noted that one of the daughters of Atlas, the Pleiades are called, ALKYONE means. This suggests a connection to ALKINOOS.
As to the accuracy of the Homeric report there really is not much doubt, because he tells his stories in cultural mixed with mythological elements – Troy was the first evidence for the accuracy of the Homeric epics.
Another daughter of Atlas, who was known to be king of Atlantis, was called MAIA. The ancient Maya had derived its name from this deity in America after the fall of Atlantis?
Had Homer, processes the Atlantis legend, which at that time was apparently still present in his odyssey in its history, or was he a scholar in which a Similar Atlantis story was written access to fonts. In any case, the comparisons between the empire of Atlantis and the island kingdom Scheria are amazing.
