Ampheres was one of the first ten kings of Atlantis. According to Plato [Critias 113d] he was the son of Poseidon and Cleito, and the twin brother of Evaemon.
Atlantisforschung noted that the German Atlantis researcher Paul Borchardt, who suspected Atlantis to be in the region of Tunisia, derived the name Ampheres from a Berber tribe called “Am-Phares”: ” They are undoubtedly the Pharusii of Ptolemy (IV, 6, 17) in the Wadi Draa south of the Atlas. Am means people. The name is still very common today. Borchardt thus localizes “, as Ulrich Hofmann, an expert on Borchard’s work, remarks, ‘ the area of ??the Ampheres on the southwestern edge of the Maghreb, in modern-day Morocco, south of the up to 2500m high Atlas Mountains.’(a)
Evaemon (Euaemon) (L)
Evaemon (Euaemon) is the name of one of the fourth pair (with Ampheres) of twins who became the first kings of Atlantis.
Frank Joseph identifies Euaemon with the ‘pre-Celtic’ king of Ireland, Eremon. This somewhat incorrect as the Milesians are generally accepted as having been Celtic. Eremon was one of eight Milesian brothers who invaded Ireland from Spain and defeated the Tuatha dé Danaan. It is interesting that Eremon had a brother, Eber Finn, with whom he shared control of Ireland, with Eber ruling the south and Eremon ruling the north. This arrangement was short-lived as they fought against each other leading to Eber’s death and Eremon ruling a united Ireland.
