Yes there was a superpower before Plato and you're suggesting right
here what it was. Egypt. Egypt had been a nation and a power (Up and

Are you sure that the early American cities and pyramids predate
Plato? I don't have references here, but I seem to recall that most
of the Meso American civilizations were no earlier than the middle of
the first millenium AD.
