Talk:Akrotiri (Santorini)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Between Cyprus and Crete?

From the article: "Akrotiri’s strategic position between Cyprus and Minoan Crete [...]". Geographically, Santorini is not at all between Cyprus and Crete. From Crete, Santorini is due north, and Cyprus is due east. Anybody know what is meant by this phrase? --Amble (talk) 20:50, 4 July 2015 (UTC)

In bronze age the direct line was not achievable, because it was much longer than a day's distance. So to get from Cyprus to Crete, you needed several stops and Santorini was the most important one. --h-stt !? 16:50, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
I suspected something like that, but as it stands it's not clear. It would be preferable to have a source that explains this, but I'll try a clarification. --Amble (talk) 18:52, 6 July 2015 (UTC)
