Archaeological evidence, based on the established chronology of Bronze Age Mediterranean cultures dates the eruption to around 1500 BC. These dates, however, conflict with radiocarbon dating which indicates that the eruption occurred about 1645–1600 BC. Around the time of the radiocarbon-indicated date of the eruption, there is evidence for a significant climatic event in the Northern Hemisphere. The evidence includes failure of crops in China, as well as evidence from tree rings. The tree rings date the climatic event to 1628 BC.

The Thera eruption occurred during a mature phase of the LM IA period. Efforts to establish the calendar date of the volcanic eruption have been extremely controversial. Radiocarbon dating has indicated a date in the late 17th century BCE;[10][11] those radiocarbon dates, however, conflict with the estimates of archaeologists, who synchronize the eruption with the Conventional Egyptian chronology and obtain a date of around 1525-1500 BCE.[12][13][14]

I would say that it is Proclus that is "missing the point."  After all, Proclus linked to the paper I quoted, which clearly states that Proclus' reference asserts that Atlantis never existed.

If you're pro-Atlantis, Pallottino's analysis is not exactly the sort of thing you want as a reference.

Yet, there it is.

Skeptics are not needed in this thread, as Proclus continues to debunk himself.

Unbelievable ... how can any intelligent being miss the point in Pallottino's paper which is so important for every Atlantis searcher?

Harte, are you ... *really* an allosaurus?! Not only for joke?
Could you please calculate 2+2 for us? Just to see if you are human ...

This is a good example of someone getting tripped up, more often than not, by using Wikipedia as a source. As has been mentioned before, per "The Chronology of Tell el-Daba - A crucial meeting point of C14 dating, archaeology, and Egyptology in the 2nd millenium BC", the radiocarbon (C14) dating method and the archaeological dating method cannot be currently reconciled. So claiming that archaeologists synchronize one with the other is misleading, if not an outright fabrication, on someone's part.

The city and citizens, which you yesterday described to us in fiction, we will now transfer to the world of reality. It shall be the ancient city of Athens, and we will suppose that the citizens whom you imagined, were our veritable ancestors, of whom the priest spoke; they will perfectly harmonise, and there will be no inconsistency in saying that the citizens of your republic are these ancient Athenians. --  Plato's Timaeus
