Short Description

The lower citadel of Tiryns is a unique finding of settlements from the Mycenean late palatial and post-palatial periods. It was excavated between 1976 and 1983 under the conduct of Klaus Kilian. This volume comprises the report of the excavation, consisting of phase plans, isometries, planum and profile drawings, as well as photographs.


For the Mycenaean late palatial period and the postpalatial period, the Lower Citadel of Tiryns is of paramount importance – due to the excavations led by Klaus Kilian between 1976 and 1983. While in Tiryns 17.1 and 17.2 the architectural remains and stratigraphy are published, Tiryns 17.3 presents the documentation of the excavation - consisting of phase plans, isometries, planum and profile drawings, as well as photographs. During Kilian’s excavations, the trenches were documented systematically by drawings and photographs. Based on the drawings, phase plans and isometrics were drafted.
