The article deals with some enigmatic toponyms, some of them very famous, others known just to a few scholars. It provides either the etymology (for Pi-sidqi and Minoa), or the identification and location (Tahta = Akhetaten), or the original meaning of a name which is quite alien to its subsequent vagaries (Atlantis). It could prove interesting to eventually develop the suggestions about Minoa and Atlantis, in laying a new basis for two never-ending debates.
