The mountain city of Lato

A view across part of the agora of the ancient Greek city of Lato, built in the mountains. The area with the fence marks the city’s cistern; the broad flight of steps were used as seating for people to listen to whatever was going on in the agora.

The Throne Room in Knossos

The Throne Room in Knossos

The “Throne Room” at Knossos, heavily restored by Arthur Evans. It has been dated to the time of the presumed “Mycenaean” (mainland) takeover of Knossos (Late Minoan II). It is not clear if this room was really used by a king instead of a priest or priestess.
