Mycenaean Terracotta Figurines

Note: The figure on the far right is especially typical, and is known as a 'psi-figurine', since the overall shape looks like the Greek letter psi (trident-shaped). The other type, not shown here, is known as a 'phi-figurine', and its body takes a round, disc-like shape (as in the Greek letter phi).

Troy IX: Roman Odeion


Bronze age greece and the trojan war

The great walls of Troy VI, the powerfull Troy of king Priam and the Troy who was defeated by the Greeks. On the right site of the picture you can see the biggest gate of Troy VI. It doesn't look big, but don't forget in 1250 BC there lived 1009 people in Troy. On the board on the front you can see the whole park.

Troy II. After Troy VI, Troy VII was the most powerfull city. You see now a view houses of the town. There is a chimney, a oven and a well. If you compare Troy I with Troy II, you will see that Troy II if more advanced than Troy I.

Troy II. This is the portal of Troy II, and this is another prove that Troy II wasn't primitive. Troy V was more primitive than Troy II. From here there are views of the mountain 'Ida' (this was the mountain, on which, during the Trojan war, Zeus lied to watch the war).

The great east tower, walls and gate that are generally believed to date from the time of Homeric Troy (Troy VI).


Bronze age greece and the trojan war

The south tower and gate. Actually the gate is possibly the same one that is known in the Iliad as the Scaean Gate, outside which the duel between Achilles and Hector took place.

The tower on the left would have stood fifty feet high. The opening leads to the main street of Troy, which would itself have led up the hill to a palace. The cult house, in which burnt offerings would have been sacrificed, would have originally been to the right of this opening.
