The location of the ancient city of Atlantis remains a subject of debate and speculation among historians, archaeologists, and scholars. It was first mentioned by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato in his dialogues, "Timaeus" and "Critias." According to Plato, Atlantis was a powerful and advanced civilization that existed around 9,000 years before his time (approximately 11,000 years ago) beyond the "Pillars of Hercules," which is today understood to be the modern Strait of Gibraltar. Numerous theories have been proposed regarding Atlantis' location, including places such as the Mediterranean, Caribbean, British Isles, and even Antarctica. However, no definitive evidence or archaeological findings have been discovered to confirm any of these theories. As a result, many consider Atlantis to be a myth or a story created by Plato as an allegory to convey philosophical ideas.
