According to the information found in Plato's "Critias" and "Timaeus" Atlantis was an island which owed its name to that of its king Atlas.
King Atlas ruled a colation of 10 kings who once invaded Egypt: the capital of his kingdom laid on Atlantis islands, it had places, temples, channels and harbors, a fleet and an army of horse drawn chariots.
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.
In the book "Atletenu" the author Diego Ratti explain step by step how the Hyksos can be identified with the Atlanteans, how their capital Avaris had exactly the same channels, palaces, temples and harbors of Atlantis described by Plato, how their invasion of Egypt and their expulsion was the same one of the same with the war of Atlantis described by Plato.
The story of Atlantis told by Plato was not a legend, it was the description of the Hyksos Kingdom as told in a Egyptian hieroglyphic inscription which Solon translated into Greek in 570 BC approximately a thousand years after the time of the Hyksos invasion of Egypt.
