View looking up at the “beehive” ceiling of the so–called Tomb of Agamemnon/Treasury of Atreus.  This dome rises 42 ft. [13 m.] above the floor of this circular tomb.  This dome is still in–tact from 1250 B.C.!

In the lower portion of this image the relieving triangle above the doorway is visible.
