Place Names After the Ice Age During Greek Heroic Age for Kings in History Some Namesakes of Geography


Attica, an ancient territory of Greece, was named circa 1350 b. c. for Actaeus, whose daughter Agraulos married Cecrops for whom Cecropia (later called Athens for Cecrop’s goddess Neith) was named, and Sais of Egypt from where had hailed Cecrops was begun built in that same timeframe, when the Ice Age had recently ended, because the geography was different after the sea level had risen a few hundred vertical feet within a century. Pelops of Greece also lived in that timeframe, for him named the entire post Ice Age greek peninsula the Peloponnesos, before that the region known as Pelasgia (for Peleg).
