So Where Did the Atlantis Turbine Families, Solon™ and Nereus™, Get their Names?

In Greek mythology, Atlantis is the name of the legendary island that was a naval power that conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of Solon, or approximately 9600 BC.  The story of the Isle of Atlantis first occurs in Plato’s two dialogues the “Timaeus” and the “Critias.” Plato’s story centers on Solon, a great Greek legislator and poet who journeyed to Egypt some 150 years earlier. While in the Egyptian city of Sais, Solon received the story of Atlantis from priests.

According to Solon’s notes the history of Atlantis began at the beginning of time. It was then that the immortal gods divided the world among themselves and each ruled their proportion. The god Poseidon received Atlantis, an island larger the Libya and Asia combined. He chose for a wife the mortal woman Cleito, and with her begun the royal family of Atlantis.

Nereus, in Greek Mythology, was the eldest son of Pontus and Gaia, the Sea and the Earth. In the Iliad , Nereus was one of the manifestations of the Old Man of the Sea. Nereus was a Titan who, with Doris, fathered the Nereids. Together, he lived with his family in the Aegean Sea and was a shape-shifter with the power of prophecy. Thus Nereus and Proteus were the first two manifestations of the god of the sea prior to being supplanted by Poseidon.
