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.
