And this concludes this flashback.

The position of women in the Mycenaean culture is not entirely clear. From the archaeological evidence, the Mycenaeans seem to have been largely patriarchal, but priestesses seem to have held high status and could sometimes be in control of property. According to the Linear B records they could legally own, or lease, plots of land. A right that the women of Classical Athens didn’t have several hundred years later.
