Is there a specific name for this sort of decorative line pattern?

I believe it’s of ancient Greek origin, but I’m not sure.

A classmate and I are writing a paper on recursion, and I’ve arrived at the section about recursion in geometry right now. I’d like to use a somewhat more literate term than “those decorative line patterns.” I figured I might as well ask here.

If your answer is “i have no clue” why bother answering in the first place?

Addendum: Also sometimes called a “meander”—google “meander pattern” – may be helpful.
