Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Tiryns: Towers A & B. flanking the main gate from the Palace".
Notes A commercial image from the English Photographic Company. But based on numerous images from the English Photographic Company donated via Shirley Atchley catalogued from SPHS 3401 to 3407; 3421 to 3439 appearing in the 1897 slide catalogue in the Journal of Hellenic Studies, it probably dates no later than 1897. On the negative is the number TIR. 17 and a cropped caption which reads: "[...] of Tiryns. Towers A. + B."
