Calabi's triangle is the unique triangle other that the equilateral triangle for which the largest inscribed square can be inscribed in three different ways (Calabi 1997). Calabi's triangle is an isosceles triangle with base-to-side length ratio (OEIS A046095), where

is the largest positive root of

It has continued fraction [1, 1, 1, 4, 2, 1, 2, 1, 5, 2, 1, 3, 1, 1, 390, ...] (OEIS A046096).
