The history of the star: Atria

Alpha (α) Triangulum Australis, Atria, is a star in the constellation of the Southern Triangle.

Alpha (α  Atria), beta (β) and gamma (γ), 3.1 each, were—perhaps are now—the seamen’s Triangle Stars

The constellation was given the title "the Three Patriarchs", believed to refer to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, by Christian interpreters of the constellations.

The astrological influences of the constellation Triangulum Australis

No myths or astrological interpretations are linked to these stars because Triangulum Australis was not visible to the ancients in the northern hemisphere.
