I just happened to log on and noticed this thread, Susan. This is fascinating. I thought that Thera and its population was destroyed in the eruption c1628 bce. Or, is this another case of the Greeks referring to a population separate from the city for which they were named? There is another case that I ran across of a reference to the Athenians as a people before the city of Athens existed. So, could what you have found be a reference to the Therans after abandoning their island? I am very curious because my genetic roots go back to bronze age Crete and I would like to know where they dispersed to after 1628 bce.
