Statius Sebosus was a Greek geographer who flourished around 100 BC and was not contemporary with Plato, as frequently claimed. His comment that it was 40 days sail from the Gorgades to the Hesperides have excited a number of investigators, particularly Andrew Collins. The Gordades are generally accepted to have been the Cape Verde Islands. However, the identification of the Hesperides has been more controversial, with the more popular view being that they were the Canaries or Azores. Nevertheless, Collins has bravely suggested a Caribbean location for the Hesperides in his Gateway to Atlantis.
