Treasury of Atreus

This site is also known as the Tomb of Agamemnon. It is was definitely a tomb, but any treasure it may have contained was robbed long ago.

It dates from around 1300 BC and is one of the best-preserved of this kind of beehive tomb. It's hard to judge the scale from a picture, but that doorway is almost 18 feet high (5.4 m).
