Chapter Summary

Nineteen blocks of limestone, found in late 1962 among blocks covering two Mycenaean underground passages originally used for water supply on the northwest side of the Cyclopean walls of the lower Acropolis of Tiryns. By the time the inscriptions were written, the passages seem to have already gone out of use, at least as far as water supply is concerned. Blocks 5 and 6 were the only ones found in situ, at the lower and upper sections of the southern passage respectively. The rest of the blocks had been removed before it was discovered that they were inscribed. It appears that none of the relevant blocks was used to cover the northern underground passage.
