Treasure-filled tomb may rewrite ancient Greek history


The Pylos Combat Agate, a small limestone-encrusted seal, is the most exciting treasure yet to come from the tomb of a Bronze-Age Greek warrior. The Minoan sealstone found in the tomb of the “Griffin Warrior” is being heralded as the single best work of glyptic art ever recovered from the Aegean Bronze Age.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Be good if they could get rid of the word treasure. The agate seems a remarkable find, the shield as depicted looks very impractical
