Overview

Antillia was a chain of seven large islands in the Western Ocean. There fled thousands of Atlantean survivors from the Great Cataclysm.[1] It was located southwest of sunken Atlantis and east of the land of Mayapan.

Ptahuacan was the capital[4] and only city on the archipelago,[3] though the legends told of the Seven Cities of the Antilles.[1]

It was believed by the Antillians that they were the last surviving city of the Atlanteans on Earth,[1] though other cities of the remnants of Atlantis existed.

History

After the Great Cataclysm, survivors of Atlantis scattered on surviving islands, including Antillia, and Ptahuacan,[5] which became its only city on the archipelago of Antillia,[3] and its capital.[4]

In Hyboria, there was telling of the "Seven Cities of the Antilles", made of brick of gold and streets paved with silver, though similar were told about Vendhya and Khitai, tales that proved wrong, while the Antillians themselves belived Ptahuacan to be the last surviving city of the Atlanteans on Earth.[1] Both statements appear to be erroneous.

...[1][6][2]

The Post-Hyborian Cataclysm happened circa 8,000 BC virtually erased evidence of the existence of society developed on Antillia and Ptahuacan (as well as on Avalon, Mayapan, Opar, Ruta, and Zothique).[5]
