Solon (c.640-559 B.C.) was an Athenian statesman, lawmaker, and poet. While historical documentation on him is limited, he is known for his efforts to legislate against political, economic, and moral decline in archaic Athens. It is believed that his reforms failed in the short term, yet they would lay the foundation for Athenian democracy. He is also recognized as one of the Seven Sages of Greece and, more secretly, a Keeper of the Journal.
The Scrolls of AzizEdit
At some point in his life, Solon met a priest in Egypt who told him the story of Atlantis. Intrigued, Solon looked to find any record of the sunken continent when he returned to Greece. He would be directed to the Scrolls of Aziz, a collection of writings his people christened when they found them many years, or possibly centuries, ago.
In studying the Scrolls, Solon realized that the scholars before him were incorrect in believing the Scrolls to have been written in the dead dialect of Mesopotamia. He deduced that it was actually written in the Atlantean Language itself. It is unknown if he had ever fully translated the Scrolls, if at all. Nevertheless, his discovery would bring about further curiosity to the subject of Atlantis.
