  • Experts have Possibly discovered Regal Throne from the Times of the Trojan Battle

The experts have discovered what is possibly a regal throne from the times of the Trojan battle.

An archaeologist claims to have found what is a fragment from the lost throne of the civilization of Mycenae. This culture is redolent of Trojan times and goes way back into the mists of mythological history. The man responsible for this discovery is a Greek named Christofilis Maggidis.

He is a supervisor of excavations in southern Greece. The artifact that has caused quite a stir in the world of ancient historical studies was found in 2014. It was exhumed from a streambed. It was a part of the royal throne and possibly got detached from it during a natural upheaval.  

This earthquake probably took place around 1200 BC. The Cultural Ministry of Greece has ignored the finding and declared the chunk to be a part of a stone basin.

However, Maggidis says that it was a fundamental component of a piece of furniture that was made for sitting. He also cited the fact that it could not have held any liquid since it was porous in nature. 

He also spoke of how this discovery was of key importance. The Civilization of Mycenae was extant from the 14th to the 12th centuries BC. It was a uniquely Greek culture and milieu that flourished in those distant times.

The era was of Bronze Age temporality. During its heyday, it had a total of 30,000 citizens and extended itself over 32 hectares. The times we are speaking of range over the year 1350 BC.

The monarchs that lived way back then are salient figures of Greek mythology. They were involved in the killing of their parents, incestuous relationships and feudal fights that lasted centuries.  

The most famous person of this ancient civilization was Agamemnon who charged with the rest of the Greek army into Troy and razed it to the ground. Agamemnon was later on killed by his wife Clytemnestra or her lover Aegisthus.

Up until now no other thrones have been found in Greece. Maggidis is still at it trying to unearth more similar samples of the throne, according to DailyMail. Yet such a sample has been hard to find in the ruins and rubble.

There are those in the Cultural Ministry of Greece who deny that Maggidis has found any throne. They have called it a hoax and said that it is a ploy to divert attention from the reality of the situation.
