Sir Francis Bacon (1561- 1627 AD) wrote about the "Great Atlantis", and his spin-off utopia which he called the "New Atlantis".  Bacon uses rounded numbers to give an approximate date for the Great Atlantis.  But Francis Bacon is stating that Great Atlantis was at its peak of sailing skills "somewhat" before 1448 BC.

His fictional account states that 60 years have passed since America was discovered (i.e.  60 years after 1492 AD), and also that Great Atlantis was thriving slightly more than 3000 years before that time.  The fictional date for the New Atlantis, 1552 AD, was 10 years before Bacon was born.

You shall understand (that which perhaps you will scarce think credible) that about 3,000 years ago, or somewhat more, the navigation of the world (especially for remote voyages) was greater than at this day. Do not think with yourselves, that I know not how much it is increased with you, within these THREESCORE years; I know it well, and yet I say, greater then than now; whether it was, that the example of the ark, that saved the remnant of people from the universal deluge, gave them confidence to venture upon the waters, or what it was; but such is the truth. The Phoenicians, and especially the Tyrians, had great fleets; so had the Carthaginians their colony, which is yet farther west. Toward the east the shipping of Egypt, and of Palestine, was likewise great. China also, and the great Atlantis (that you call America)....abounded then in tall ships.
