The Arab Authors Located to the Atlantis Island and the Amazonian Island in Andalusia

When talking about to Greek myths of Hercules and the Amazon, the Muslim commentators of these legend grecolatinas, located the island of the Amazonians in xauf al-Andalus, which is possible to interpret like "inside the region of Andalusia", to which such authors denominate like xazirat al-Andalus (island of Andalus). Andalus was the name that the Arabs gave - in a principle all the peninsula of Iberia.

According to Attabari, to the north of Morocco, in xazirat al-Andalus or "island of Andalus", existed the city of Andalus; city that was covered with golden brass.

The investigator and scientific atlantologist Georgeos Diaz-Montexano, defends that this testimony of the Arab authors is sustained in a tradition on the island of Atlantis or Atlantida described by Plato, whose main city or the Acropolis was covered with brass and oreichalkós, a metal species of copper gilded, similar to gold.

The Arab sources still demonstrate that in the heat of Medieval Age, Iberia was considered like a great island or peninsula (xazirat) and like this was identified with a same island or peninsula that had a city covered by a type of brass of gilded color, that only could be the same island or peninsula (Nêsos) that Plato denominates Atlantis or Atlantida.
