Located in a walking distance from the ancient site, the Treasury of Atreus is actually a vaulted tomb. When it was discovered, it has already been looted centuries ago. Archaeologists believe that this was the tomb of Agamemnon, the famous king of Mycenae, and that a golden treasury has been buried inside with the king.
Due to their huge size, the myth says that the walls of Mycenae were constructed by Cyclops, some giagantic creatures with one eye. This is why they named these walls Cyclopean.
The vaulted tomb of Clytemnestra in Mycenae dates to about 1,200 B.C. Although it is not certain if this is the true tomb of Clytemnestra, it is believed so because of the golden jewelry that were found inside and that must belong to a queen.
