Clytemnestra's Tomb : Michelin's recommendations
This communal royal tomb beneath a dome, more recent than the shaft graves, is known as Clytemnestra's Tomb and dates from the 14C BC. A path to the entrance (35m long and 5m wide) leads to the door (5.48m high) surmounted by a lintel made of enormous blocks of stone. The bases of the framing columns are visible on either side. The huge round funeral chamber (13.50m in diameter) is roofed with a dome that is nearly 13m high. The lintel over the door is curved to follow the shape of the dome.
