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.
