In Plato's account Atlantis was a [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Naval_power][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]naval power[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] lying "in front of the [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Pillars_of_Hercules][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Pillars of Hercules[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21]" that conquered many parts of [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Western_Europe][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Western Europe[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] and [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Africa][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Africa[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] 9,000 years before the time of [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Solon][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Solon[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21], or approximately 9600 BC. After a failed attempt to invade [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Athens][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Athens[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21], Atlantis sank into the ocean "in a single day and night of misfortune".
As a story embedded in Plato's dialogues, Atlantis is generally seen as a myth created by Plato to illustrate his political theories[[/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Wikipedia:Citation_needed][i][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]citation needed[/i][/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21]]. Although the function of the story of Atlantis seems clear to most scholars, they dispute whether and how much Plato's account was inspired by older traditions. Some scholars argue Plato drew upon memories of past events such as the [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Thera_eruption][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Thera eruption[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] or the [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Trojan_War][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Trojan War[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21], while others insist that he took inspiration from contemporary events like the destruction of [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Helike][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Helike[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] in 373 BC[/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/l%20cite_note-1][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff][2][/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] or the failed [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Sicilian_Expedition][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Athenian invasion of Sicily[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] in 415–413 BC.
The possible existence of a genuine Atlantis was actively discussed throughout [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Classical_antiquity][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]classical antiquity[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21], but it was usually rejected and occasionally parodied by later authors. While little known during the [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Middle_Ages][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Middle Ages[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21], the story of Atlantis was rediscovered by [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Humanism][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Humanists[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] in the Early Modern period. Plato's description inspired the [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Utopia][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]utopian[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] works of several [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Renaissance][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Renaissance[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21] writers, like [/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/Francis_Bacon][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]Francis Bacon[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21]'s "[/size][url=https://algassania2.mam9.com/wiki/New_Atlantis][u][size=21][color:d508=#0000ff]New Atlantis[/u][/color][/size][/url][size=21]". Atlantis inspires today's literature, from science fiction to comic books to films, its name having become a byword for any and all supposed advanced prehistoric lost civilizations.
