Mycenae was an ancient settlement of the Argolid, with the earliest occupation evident ca. 2900 B.C. As the eponymous site of the Mycenaean culture of the Aegean Bronze Age, the site flourishes as a fortified citadel during the mid to late second millennium B.C. In the first millennium B.C., the site experiences a revival of fortunes, although by Strabo's time the settlement had vanished.

- Mycenae (ID: 570491) (DARMC location 3030) has its lat/long pair switched at http://pleiades.stoa.org/places/570491/darmc-location-3030 When they are unswitched it is still across the valley from where it should be. I recommend replotting it at 37.730462, 22.756172 (Grave Circle A). September 19, 2012, eye altitude of 3104 feet.
