Agamemnon was the Mycenian king who, according to the Greek author Homer, fought in the Trojan War and reportedly built the Trojan Horse. Although we know that Agamemnon was a historical figure, we are not as certain of Homer’s tails about his exploits including the Trojan Horse.

I edited the image with ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I adjusted the lighting and increased the clarity. Then I sharpened it a bit.

  1. Most ancient historical or play authors wrote from fact and fiction all intermingled. At least I am pretty sure of that fact… Great photo… Even though I did not understand what you were saying about the editing etc. No offense but I am useless when it comes to photography. The fact remains that your picture is exceptional and makes me want to go and possibly visit the tomb of Agamemnon…

    • That’s what I was thinking also. It’s probably a mixture of fact and fiction.

      Don’t worry about not understanding the processing info. I’m on some sites that want to see that information so I include it.

      If you eer get a chance to go, do so. I was only in Greece for a couple of days but it was well worth it.
