From a standpoint of archaeological artifacts - a proto-sinaitic script was used very early (near the Aden region that you are nominating for an origin of Atlantis).

At a later date, the Greek poet Hesiod wrote about a mythical "island" Erythia, in the west, near sunset, and bordering approximately what we now call the "western half of Mediterranean Sea".  (i.e Heracles had to cross the so-called "Okean", in Hesiod's Theogony 287ff, to steal cattle from a place we (modern people) now call southern Spain -- a place that Hesiod had called Erythia.

A humanized biography for Hesiod's Erythia made her a Greek mythical "daughter of the titan Atlas".  And Hesiod also used the word "Atlantis" to mean "daughter of Atlas".

Thus, to be plain and simple, Hesiod's "Erythia island" seems to be the prototype for Critias's "Atlantis island".   

As far as I know, Georgeos does not agree that Erythia = Atlantis.
