Homer, in the Iliad, evokes a strong enclosure at Tiryns. It is always a commune of Greece, not far from those of Argos and Mycenae. All three have known the Mycenaean period and have retained their name from the Bronze Age.

The first excavations of Tiryns were carried out by Schliemann at the end of the 19th century, confirming that it was the city evoked by Homer in the Iliad, due to the presence of a palace with fortified walls. The city was founded towards the end of the second millennium BC. At the height of its splendor, between 1400 and 1200 BC, the excavators assessed a population of 15,000 inhabitants.

My notes of veracity :

Tiryns, in Greece, has that name since more than 3000 years: 5/5
