GREECE - Archaeological Sites of Mycenae and Tiryns

"The archaeological sites of Mycenae and Tiryns are the imposing ruins of the two greatest cities of the Mycenaean civilization, which dominated the eastern Mediterranean world from the 15th to the 12th century B.C. and played a vital role in the development of classical Greek culture. These two cities are indissolubly linked to the Homeric epics, the Iliad and the Odyssey , which have influenced European art and literature for more than three millennia." -

"In this postcard, you can see the Lion Gate, ruins of the palace and
the Treasury of Atreus (which is believed to be the tomb of King Agamemnon).
Mycenae was one of the cities most linked to Homeric Epics "Iliad" and "Odyssey", shares Elena.  Thank you so much, Elena for this wonderful postcard with cute stamp!
