Throne room with frescoes
The Throne Room is one of the important structures that was restored at the archaeological site at Knossos located on the island of Crete, Greece. The purpose of this room is still being debated.
Built into the wall in the middle of the room is a rock throne flanked on each side by the frescoes of Griffins, which are the mythological creatures with the head and wings of an eagle and body and tail of a lion. In front of the throne is a circular tub known as Lustral Basin, which was likely used for ceremonial purposes. Built into the wall next to the throne are the benches that can seat about 16 people.
