|View from an ancient tomb in Mycenae. The famous vault of the Treasury of Atreus.
This tholos tomb with stone dome, the largest known, was plundered in antiquity. Yopu can see that the lintel is made from 2 massive stones. The inner one weights 130 tones, while the void triangle is the symbol for the Mycenaean architecture.
