The Triangle Square at Akrotiri, a Minoan Bronze Age settlement on the volcanic Greek island of Santorini (Thera), Greece. The settlement was destroyed in the Theran eruption about 1627 BC and buried in volcanic ash, which preserved the remains of fine frescoes and many objects and artworks. The ancient settlement of Akrotiri has been suggested as a possible inspiration for Plato's story of Atlantis.
