I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Mycenaean mythology

As you climb up to the citadel, this is the view from outside the walls.

In mythology, Mycenae was founded by Perseus, who landed here one day while he was riding around on Pegasus.

I prefer to think of Agamemnon, and imagine him striding off to the coastline on his way to retrieve his wayward sister-in-law, with Clytemnestra glaring daggers at his retreating back.
