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.
