The Throne of Agamemnon

Abstract

Dubbed by the media as the ‘Throne of Agamemnon,’ the discovery of the throne of Mycenae constitutes the first Mycenaean throne found on mainland Greece. On June 12, 2014, a large fragment of a stone seat was discovered directly below the citadel by Erik DeMarche and Daniel Fallu. For the next two years, the stone seat was studied intensely by a interdisciplinary team of specialists and securely identified as part of the royal throne from the last phase of the citadel at Mycenae.
