Myce'nAe, a very ancient city in the northeastern part of Argolis, in the Peloponnesus, built upon a craggy height. It was the capital of Agamemnon's kingdom, and the principal city in Greece. About 468 b.c. it was destroyed by the inhabitants of Argos, and never rose again to its former prosperity. In Strabo's time its ruins alone remained ; these are still to be seen in the neighbourhood of Kharvati, and are noble specimens of Cyclopean architecture. The most celebrated are the ' Gate of Lions,' chief entrance to the ancient Acropolis, and the 'Treasury of Atreus.' Excavations by Schliemann in 1876-89 brought to light another subterranean treasury and ancient tombs containing terra-cottas, vases, weapons, gold death-masks, etc. See Schlie-mann's Mycenœ and Tiryns (trans. 1877).
