The tomb of Epano Phournos is known as the Tholos Tomb of Mycenae. The tomb is named after the eponymous site of discovery, which in turn is named after the Tomb of Tolos itself, which farmers used to call Phournos. Tolos' tomb is located on the western slope of Mount Panajica, about 450 meters west of Upper Mycenae. According to Alan Wace's classification, it belongs to the first Tholos group, which can be traced back to the late stage. It was built around 1500 BC. Along with the Cyclops tomb, it is one of the oldest tombs of Tolos in Mycenae. The passage was blocked because the grave was in danger of collapsing.
