provided the first written account of the lost land of Atlantis,
click on the folder icon below for the full text of Plato's "Timaeus".
Two of Plato's 'The Dialogues': 'Timaeus' and 'Critias' mention the story of Atlantis.

and the quest for military domination violated the divine link between
humanity and the gods.
