Throne  Detail

View of the alabaster throne in the inner room of the “throne room” at Knossos.  It has been suggested that the king of Knossos sat on this throne as he ruled his subjects.

The room is decorated with copies of the original frescos.  Three Griffins are visible in this images.  They are lying among lily plants that are set against a red background.

The stone basin on the lower left side of the image may have been used for ritual purposes. Note too the stone floor of the room.
