First Dynasty Egyptian Text Spelling for Atlantis
I found this while doing a photosearch for something different. This is a transliteration for a place name listed in a first-dynasty (3000 BC) Egyptian hieroglyphic inscription and it seems to correspond to Atlantis. It is not the familiar letter order, it is a little jumbled from what we are used to. Nonetheless this does seem another clear sign that the Atlantis legend is from the beginning of Egyptian history and did not originate in some subsequent event such as the Late Bronze Age eruption of the Thera volcano or the Trojan War.
[As I understand it, the initial H can be dropped or added by different dialects, as it is in London Cockney. And the Ancient Egyptian did not distinguish between l and r. Best Wishes, Dale D.]
