During the 2015 excavation campaign of the Univerity of Cincinnati at Pylos, lead by Jack Davis and Sharon Stocker, an unplundered tomb of a very rich and probably very powerful Mycenaean man was found. The tomb was named by its excavators Griffin Warrior Tomb and contained more than 2000 objects. Among the artifacts recovered from the tomb were more than 50 sealstones and four impressive golden signet rings!
