Abstract

In this article, the author responds to the claim put forward by William M. Calder III in 1999 that the most famous burial mask from the Shaft Graves at Mycenae-that generally believed to be the one that Schliemann took for the "face of Agamemnon"-is a forgery, planted by Schliemann himself. From an analysis of the surviving documentation, it is argued that this theory is untenable, particularly since Schliemann did not originally associate this mask with Agamemnon.
