The golden mask of Agamemnon! (National Archaeological Museum) Athens - Greece

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps after a second review [?]

The Mask of Agamemnon is an artifact discovered at Mycenae in 1876 by Heinrich Schliemann. The artifact is a funeral mask hewn in gold, and was found over the face of a body located in a burial shaft (grave V). Schliemann believed that he had discovered the body of the legendary Greek leader Agamemnon, but modern archaeological research suggests that the mask is from 1550–1500 BC (earlier than the life of Agamemnon, as tradition regards it). The mask is currently displayed in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
