Thirassia Riva, Santorini (Greece)
Therasia also known as Thirasa is an island in the volcanic island group of Santorini in the Greek Cyclades. It lies north-west of Nea Kameni a small island formed in recent centuries by volcanic activity and thus marking the centre of the island group. Therasia is the second largest island of the group the largest by far being Thera. Therasia has a land area of 9.299 square kilometres and its population was 319 inhabitants at the 2011 census. It is part of the municipal unit of Oia. Thera and Therasia were separated by the Thera eruption. At Knossos in a LMIIIA context seven Linear B texts while calling upon all the gods make sure to grant primacy to an elsewhere-unattested entity called qe-ra-si-ja and once qe-ra-si-jo. However this probably refers to a god or a person rather than to an island Qherasia Therasia. Anciently the island of Therasia possessed a town of the same name. Thirasia is also the book of Greek poet Dimitris Varos that became a music album and theatrical performance by Greek composer Giannis Markopoulos under the title Daring Communication - Electric Theseus.
