From what I've read, the Egyptians said this happened 9000 years before Plato's time, so about 12000 years ago. Now Atlantis was supposed to have sunk due to an earthquake, and it was this time when the last glacial period was ending. If Atlantis was real, could the ice age have to do anything with it's doom? Like rising waters or anything?
There's others that think it was destroyed in the flood, and for those who think the flood was regional, Atlantis would be in the Near East so it's perfectly possible it was.
Genesis 4:17 speaks of the City of Enoch and yes Plato wrote about Atlantis around 360 BC, but most sources I have read suggest Atlantis was quite a bit sooner than 12000 years ago including a few which claim it was destroyed during the flood as you say or disappeared around 1600 BC. So those timelines would make it far closer to a timeline the city of Enoch could be in.
