Facade of the Treasury of Atreus
The largest of the tholos "beehive" tombs.
Perhaps built about 1300 B.C., about the same time as the Lion
gate. One of only two double-chambered tombs in Greece.
30-foot long, 118-ton lintel. Tomb is 43 feet high, 47 feet wide.
Bronze nails once held hundreds of bronze rosettes in place in the ceiling.
