Atlantis (Ancient Greek: Ἀτλαντὶς νῆσος, "island of Atlas") is an island mentioned in Plato's works Timaeus[1] and Critias[2], where it represents the antagonist naval power that besieges Athens, Europe and other part of the world. At the end of Plato's story, Atlantis submerges into the Atlantic Ocean.
