atalante,
Certainly it could be useful to look at any mention of the Libyans in Egyptian texts, if they could have to do with Atlantis. On the other hand, not necessarily must the Libyans always have been allied with the Atlanteans; from Plato´s text we know it only for the time of the war.

The Berbers are often described as descendants of the old Libyans, and the so called Tifinag alphabet of the Touaregs, a surviving Berber tribe, might well have had its roots in the alphabet of Atlantis.

Just two months ago a book was edited in Germany, which is locating Atlantis itself near the lake Tritonis in Algeria.

Ulrich Hofmann: Platons Insel Atlantis, 264 pages, edited by Books on Demand, 2004

In the book is no hint to an english website, but I remember that there existed a website with the same location.
I will read the book in the next weeks to find out if something interesting is to be found there for our topic.

Unfortunately I have no time now for further discussion, because I leave my home for about 4 weeks.

Greetings from Ulf
