Scope and Contents

From the File:

The Clytemnestra tomb belongs to the third group of tholoi at Mycenae, as categorised by A. J. B. Wace, dating to ca. 1400-1300 BC. A. J. B. Wace and his team cleared the dromos and tholos in 1922. The tomb is evocatively named after Clytemnestra, legendary queen of Mycenae, who conspired to murder her husband Agamemnon, as related in Homer’s Odyssey. A millennium after its construction, the tomb was overbuilt by the Hellenistic theatre.
