Critias is an unfinished dialogue between Critias, Socrates, Timaeus, and Hermocrates. in which Critias tells stories of ancient Athens and Atlantis and of how the Earth was managed by the gods. Atlantis is described as an ideal state whose people eventually become debased with greed and power. The dialogue ends abruptly when Zeus is about to announce his judgment on the Atlanteans, because this portion of the manuscript is lost.
