Atlanteia (Greek: Ἀτλάντεια Atlantēa; Atlantic Ədləntɛ) is an island of the Mediterranean, off the coast of Spain. It has been since ancient times the territory of dragons; some have identified it with the Ὀφιοῦσσα of the Greeks and the Colubraria of the Romans, though most speculate that those names represent other islands, which perhaps were contemporary or former draconic settlements, now abandoned.

Tradition credits the founding of the city to the dragon Menashe, who had been shipwrecked there at some point in the first few centuries before Christ.
