Item Description Before late in the 19th century, most scholars thought that the Trojan War was pure myth. But one true believer, the rich German-American businessman turned amateur archaeologist, Heinrich Schliemann, found evidence for Bronze Age Greece and convinced many that there really was a Trojan War. Starting in 1871, he dug at Troy, where he uncovered a rich city; he then dug at Mycenae, where he found further rich remains, including a set of funeral masks in a circle of graves within the citadel walls ("Grave circle A"). Schliemann was convinced that the mask above, because of its nobility, must be that of Agamemnon; he is said to have telegraphed the king of Greece "I have gazed upon the face of Agamemnon." According to the Greek mythology, Agamemnon was the son of King Atreus of Mycenae and Queen Aerope. He was the leader of the Greeks during the Trojan War, as Mycenae was the most powerful Greek town that time. He was also the brother of Menelaus and the husband of Clytemnestra. Agamemnon had three daughters and one son. One of his daughters, Iphigenia, was sacrificed to goddess Artemis so that the wind blows and the Greek ships could set sail to Troy. When Agamemnon returned to his kingdom after the end of the Trojan War, he was murdered by his wife Clytemnestra and her lover Aegisthus, in revenge for the sacrifice of Iphigenia. This is a replica of the Troy, Death Mask of Agamemnon. This mask is made out of resin and is very durable. It is then painted in gold. It measures; 10.5 inches (26.67 centimeters) wide x 9.5 inches (24.13 centimeters) tall x 1 inch (2.54 centimeters) thick. It has a hook on the back so you can display on wall. The Mask also comes with a Newspaper Article from the Period discovered that explains the finding of Troy.
