19: Newly discovered frescos from Tiryns

Posted by

Essentially all of the Greek myths were formulated by the Minoans and Myceneans so it would not be terribly surprising is the same were true of some of Æsop’s fables. Indeed most of the supposed legends surrounding Æsop are regarded as being completely fabricated.

This particular fresco was inspired by those in the Tsountas House at the cultic center in Mycenae. Tiryns is on the Greek mainland but most of the relevant archeological sites, particularly Knossos are to be found on the island of Crete.

c.1400 B.C.
