Critias

PLATO (ΠΛΆΤΩΝ) (c. 428 BCE - c. 347 BCE), translated by Benjamin JOWETT (1817 - 1893)

This is an incomplete dialogue from the late period of Plato's life. Plato most likely created it after Republic and it contains the famous story of Atlantis, that Plato tells with such skill that many have believed the story to be true. Critias, a friend of Socrates, and uncle of Plato was infamous as one of the bloody thirty tyrants. (Summary by Kevin Johnson)
