The "Griffin Warrior" -- #GloranthaFuel

Recommended Posts

Yeah, it's been shared a bunch on FB and other places.

What I find odd is the guy's called "the Griffin Warrior" based on an ivory plaque, yet I have not seen a single photo of said plaque. 

Everyone just shows the awesome carved gemstone.

The linked article said the plaque hasn't been conserved yet. I'm guessing it's still covered in gunk and being worked on before a public picture is presented.

@g33k, thanks for sharing. I've seen the combat agate before when the tomb was found, but hadn't seen this piece. Cool to see some ongoing speculation from those studying the grave. Mycenaeans are really interesting to me (thanks Homer).
