The lion gate in Mycenae. It actually inspired the entire section of Agamemnon from “A Hero’s Welcome”. The walls of Mycenae are known as the “Cyclopean walls” because the rocks which form the actual walls are about the size of a car, meaning they would actually weigh considerably more than a car and it was believed they could only have been built by giant cyclops. The lion gate is about six foot deep of stone making the city virtually impregnable. The picture below gives you an idea of the scale if you look at the people standing beside the wall.
