Word of the Day 7/31/14 Atlantis

Atlantis (noun)
At·lan·tis [at-lan-tis]


noun
a legendary island, first mentioned by Plato, said to have existed in the Atlantic Ocean west of Gibraltar and to have sunk beneath the sea, but linked by some modern archaeologists with the island of Thera, the surviving remnant of a much larger island destroyed by a volcanic eruption c1500 b.c.
Compare Akrotiri.

Origin: mythical island-nation, from Gk. Atlantis, lit. "daughter of Atlas." All references trace to Plato's dialogues Timaeus and Critias, both written c.360 B.C.E.

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
