The legend of Atlantis was the hystory of the Hyksos: this fascinating thesis is discussed in the book "Atletenu" with supporting archaeological and textual evidence.
Atletenu is a composite word from two hieroglyphic inscriptions: AT-LETENU. This is how the Atlanteans, were called in Egypt during the Middle Bronze Age: their king, called HEQA-LETENU resided in Avaris, capital of the Hyksos Kingdom which laid on a gezira island of the Nile River.
A new groundbreaking translation of Plato’s Critias reveals that Atlantis was Avaris, capital of the Hyksos Kingdom and that king Atlas was Shamshi-Shu I: the Amorite Prince of Ugarit who in 1646 BC led a coalition of Foreign Kings to conquer Egypt starting the XV Dynasty of the “Hyksos”. A meticulous research based on Egyptian hieroglyphic inscriptions, ancient Greek texts and cuneiform tablets that will greatly improve our knowledge of the origins of the Hyksos, of their laws and religion, of their rise and their fall.
