Blue Hue, you must have some sort of reference for some of this stuff don't you?  Like, how do you know what Plato wrote in ancient Greek, when we don't have his original papers to work with?

I've asked Mr. R. Cedric Leonard, who can translate ancient Greek, if it was possible to mistake the word for combined/together for the word for "between".  He said that to try to interpret the word as between, the syntax of the whole sentence would have to be changed. 

So for instance;

This power was larger than Libya and Asia "combined/together".    OR

This power was larger than Libya and Asia "between".

The syntax would not be correct.

He could also have been talking about the "might" of this land and not the size of it.  Mighty because they were wealthy, had control of the trade routes and goods, and probably held stations of high office.


Would you, Please re-Phrase
your confusion of words Question to Dr LEONARD in the way that I try to indicate below:

The whole issue of Atlantis location depents on the above Translation ERROR
I apologize for replacing the stand-alone word " Largerthan for 'between " ofcourse that is impossible to be mistaken,

I meant to replace the word
 in english " Larger-than(= MEZO-n two words!)
by: MESO-s(= " Situated, midway-inbetween " Three words!)
in THIS way the confusion between MEZO-MESO does make sence!  Cry Shocked Cry  dd 25 Aug 2008
