The Tholos Tomb IV did not have the ‘dome’ when discovered. The dome was reconstructed in 1957.

They found plenty of gold in these graves. Some of the gold had the sign of the owl. That owl is the symbol of the Neleids, the tribe of Nestor. You can still see that symbol on the 2 euro coin of Greeece.

A beehive tomb, also known as the tholos tomb is a burial structure characterised by its false dome created by the superposition of successively smaller rings of mudbricks or, more often, stones. The resulting structure resembles a beehive. Tholoi were used for burial in several cultures in the Mediterranean and West Asia.
