Pictures & images of the Mycenaean artefacts and antiquities exhibited at the Athens Archaeological Museum, Greece. This picture gallery shows one of the most important Mycenaean collection of Museum exhibits in the world. Centred around the grave excavations at Mycenae which yielded the so called gold death "mask of Agamemnon”. Athens archaeological museum also exhibits important Mycenaean Frescoes from Tiryns. The Mycenaean exported their distinctive pottery all around the Mediterranean. The use of highly stylised patterns make Mycenaean pottery very appealing. The use of stylised octopus deigns is a popular Mycenaean motif. The association of Mycenaean King Agamemnon with the Trojan wars makes the Mycenaeans an enigmatic civilisation. Exhibited at Athens is a Boars tusk helmet the same as the one described in Homer's Iliad.
