"To my knowledge, no attempt has been made to reconcile all of these Atlantis-es with the Sub-Mariner's."
Part of my brain wants to say that the official Marvel stance on Atlantis is that it really existed as the standard "above-the-seas, super-advanced society, hubris, etc, sunk-beneath-the-waves" mythological version, and that it sunk during a war with Lemuria (ie, the Deviant homeland). And that "Homo Mermanus" (ie, Namor's people) found the ruins a very long time later and rebuilt them into their undersea kingdom.
If that's the case, then it would be easy to assume that other groups could easily have found other ruined parts or outposts which were part of "Atlantis" and just used the name, leading to multiple unconnected Atlantises (Atlantii?).
Sort of like if North America sunk, and some merpeople rebuilt New York into an undersea kingdom while some aliens dredged Los Angeles back out of the ocean and rebuilt it while at the same time it turned out that Denver never fully sank and still exists as an island with the descendants of the original inhabitants, and all three places are called "America".
