The Mask of Agamemnon is an artifact discovered at Mycenae in 1876 by Heinrich Schliemann.
Mask of Agamemnon was named by Schliemann after the legendary Greek
king of Homer's Iliad. This mask adorned one of the bodies in the shaft
graves at Mycenae. Schliemann took this as evidence the Trojan War was a
real historical event.
In the latter half of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century, the authenticity of the mask has been formally questioned. Archaeology magazine has run a series of articles presenting both sides of the debate
The mask is currently displayed in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
