The myth start 3 million years before present Pre-Volcanic Strongili. The island was circular then and was called Strongili (the Round One). Around the 17 th century BC a colossal volcanic eruption caused the centre of Strongili to sink, leaving a caldera with high cliffs. The first Volcanic craters began to form about 2,000,000 years ago southwest of the Santorini. Over time the craters broke through the sea. Later volcanic activity would create other craters to the north of the already existing island. Eventually one island was formed. Buried under layers of ash and volcanic residue for centuries.
