Lipari Islands *
The Lipari or Aeolian Islands are located northeast of Sicily. The archipelago includes the continually active volcano of Stromboli. It was another of the islands, named Vulcano after Vulcan, the Roman god of fire, which gave us the word ‘volcano’.
The group of islands is the preferred location for Atlantis by writers such as Winfried Huf and Vlaceslav Jurikov.
It appears that the claim by Jurikov may have been a hoax according to a report on the atlantisforshung.de website!(c)
Further information regarding the extent of this archipelago from the time of the Last Glacial Maximum is available on the mapmistress website(b).
Volcanic pumice from the archipelago has been identified as far away as Egypt and dates to the 18th Dynasty(a).
