The Treasury of Atreus or Tomb of Agamemnon is a tomb located on the Panagitsa Hill at Mycenae, Greece. The tomb was constructed during the Bronze Age around 1250 BC.

German archeologist Heinrich Schliemann discovered the shaft graves under the 'agora' in the Acropolis at Mycenae. The tomb has probably no relationship with either Atreus or Agamemnon, as archaeologists believe that the sovereign buried there ruled at an earlier date than the two; it was named thus by Heinrich Schliemann and the name has been used ever since.

The erection of Tholos started in 360 B.C. and was completed in about 350 B.C. by the famous architect Polykleitos, who also designed the theater of Epidaurus, possibly a grandson of the sculptor Polikleitos

The most important building in the sanctuary of Epidaurus was the Tholos or Thymele. The excavations on the site started in 1881 and were first conducted by the Greek archeologist Panayotis Kavvadias. They lasted until his death in 1928 under the auspices of the Archeological Society of Athens.

Nafplio is a town in the Peloponnese of Greece which gained importance as a seaport held under a succession of royal houses in the Middle Ages.

At the top of the photo stands the Palamidi, a fortress built by the Venetians during their second occupation of the area (1686–1715).

The Royal Tombs of Mycenae, officially known as Grave Circle A, is a 16th-century BC cemetery situated to the south of the Lion Gate, the main entrance of the Bronze Age citadel of Mycenae in southern Greece. The graves give important clues of the early phase of the Mycenaean civilization.

The circle contains six shaft graves, where a total of nineteen bodies were buried. It has been suggested that a mound was constructed over each grave, and funeral stelae were erected. Among the objects found were a series of gold death masks, additionally beside the deceased were full sets of weapons, ornate staffs as well as gold and silver cups. The site was excavated by the archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann in 1876, following the descriptions of Homer and Pausanias. One of the gold masks he unearthed became known as the "The Death Mask of Agamemnon", ruler of Mycenae according to Greek mythology. However, it has been proved that the burials date circa three centuries earlier, before Agamemnon is supposed to have lived.
