This temple existed in the days of Plato, but did it exist in the days of Solon?  It is mentioned by Herodotus as pre-dating Alexander 1(500BC).  I am trying to link this temple of Heracles(Khonsu) to the pillars of Heracles.  Herodotus calls this city "Taucheria"(sp?), or a greek word meaning Salty Fish.
I have the pillars of Proteus existing around here.

Also, in the artistic drawing, this temple appears on an island.  I am trying to link this with the islands off of Africa, which Pliny calls: "columnae" (pillars).

This western branch of the nile was called Heraclean Mouth of the Nile by Skylax(500BC).  Additionally, he calls this branch of the nile, the "boundary of LIBYA and ASIA".

At one time, this region was called "Gauti" or "pi-gauti".  It's not Gadir, but it's not too far off either.
