Photograph of the mask of 'Agamemnon', 1878

In the story of the Trojan War, Menelaus' wife Helen was abducted by Paris of Troy. Agamemnon, son of the King of Mycenae, led an army to retrieve her which started the epic war. This golden mask was discovered by German archaeologist Dr. Heinrich Schliemann and has been controversially attributed to Agamemnon.
