Ὅτι μὲν ὑμεῖς, ὦ ἄνδρες Ἀθηναῖοι, πεπόνθατε ὑπὸ τῶν ἐμῶν κατηγόρων, οὐκ οἶδα·

ἐγὼ δ' οὖν καὶ αὐτὸς ὑπ' αὐτῶν ὀλίγου ἐμαυτοῦ ἐπελαθόμην, οὕτω πιθανῶς ἔλεγον.

"I cannot help thinking that Plato believed the story of the Atlantis, as detailed in the Timaeus, to be genuine history." – "Why must we consider a story which certainly obtained the credence of Plato unworthy the notice of modern criticism, and suppose that when the priests of Sais told Solon that a large island ... was destroyed by an earthquake ..., they were playing on the credulity of a stranger, or repeating an old wife's tale that had originated no one knew how and when? That the tale should afterwards be overlaid with fable is what might be expected, but there is no reason that I can see, why it may not have been originally based on truth." (Edwin Guest 1883)

For a battle you need a battle hymn: Marche européenne "Marche Atlantis".
