Primitive Ocean Names
What was the ocean surrounding the super continent called?
Today we call it the Panthalassa Ocean, from Greek words Pan = all,
Thalassa = oceans.
However, since people haven't been around that long (including the Greeks,
who probably didn't know of a supercontinent since they likely didn't know
about the American continents) , it wasn't called anything back then.
