Here is a picture i took today, it's only 200 meters from my house (my moms village) of Menelaus Tomb i think it was about 1200 B.C. there was some splendid gold and silver found that some are displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Athens.

Your interesting photo sent me to read about Menelaus. It's a great feature of this forum to have near world-wide glimpses of interesting places.

That's an interesting pic. Hercules! A goodexample of beehive shaped architecture, it seems. Well done

Once,Menelaus' tomb might have had asplendid corbel vault like that of his father's in Mycenia, namely Atreus' whichpresented the largest unobstructed interiorbefore the Pantheon in Rome...
