Haiku – The Fall of Mycenae: Mycenae a sea of blood - Click to ENLARGE:

Haiku Mycenae sea of blood

We do not know the actual circumstances of the fall of Mycenae, but we can well imagine the massive destruction of the great citadel, and the sea of blood that must have poured though it as 1,000s of citizens were mercilessly slaughtered – hence the massive spill of blood into the Aegean Sea. Reminds one of the fall of Troy.

Note that I am using the archaic Homeric genitive ending in OIO.
