I have never been sure as to why this artifact is so fascinating to me, there is just a certain je ne sais quoi about it. It can be viewed at the National Archeological Museum of Athens but was discovered in the ancient city Mycenae in the Peloponnese.
While not actually the death mask of Agamemnon, as it was later discovered to pre-date the life the Mycenaean king, it is a stunning example of prehistory death masks. It has even been referred to as the Mona Lisa of Prehistory by the Harvard University Press.
