Akrotiri, Santorini, Greece, Late Bronze Age (LBA), Late Minoan I period, Akrotiri, Santorini (Thera), Greece. This fresco was found during the excavations conducted by Spyridon Marinatos from 1967 to 1974 at Akrotiri on the southern coast of the ringed islands of Santorini (the Pompeii of the Aegean) which was covered by thick deposits of ash and pumice from the great Bronze Age eruption of the Santorini volcano that occurred between 1627 and 1600 BC. It was discovered on the south wall of room 1 in the Beta Building and is 0.94 metres (3.1 feet) wide and 2.75 metres (9.0 feet) high. This exquisite fresco is on display at the P. M.
