Unless You Want to Believe That Plato Thought King Theseus Lived Ten Thousand Years Previously Then Months


Hora in Greek means a segment of time, from which come the words hour and year, so when Plato said that kings Theseus, Cecrops, Erysichthon, and Erichthonios lived 9,000 segments of time before Solon’s day (circa 600 b. c.), he obviously meant month-long periods, otherwise Plato thought that those kings who lived circa 1400 b. c. actually lived over 8,000 years before that, in ships with bronze weapons!
