Scope and Content The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Mr. Atchley's numbering: 542. Argolis, Mycenae Treasury of Atreus dromos".
Notes Part of a group of over 1,000 photographs donated by Mr. Shirley C. Atchley in 1921 (JHS 1922).Therefore, if the specific date is not listed in the register, the images cannot have been produced later than 1921. Although the caption in the negative register indicates that this is the Treasury of Atreus, it is actually the Kato Phournos Tholos.
