“In his book “Before Columbus”, published 1971, Brendeis University professor Cyrus H. Gordon was adament that the ancients of the Old World, probably as far back as the Bronze Age, were sailing to, and perhaps even settling, the Americas. One of the chapters of the book is titled “The Testimony of Greek Authors” in which he cites many ancient sources of knowledge of the Americas, such as the histories and testimonies of Theopompous (4th century BC), Diodorus of Sicily (1st century BC), Aelian, a Roman author of the 2nd century AD, and Strabo, of the 1st century BC. Cyrus H. Gordon also mentions the works of Homer, and also that of Plato’s account of Atlantis, in which is described a “true continent” which lay past the sunken island continent of Atlantis, which was said to be located in what is now the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.”
