Mycenae was a province of Greece. Notable people that hailed from here include Athena's favoured mortal, Ilainus. Mycenae was once invaded by the barbarian Goth.
Although it was rarely mentioned in the Xenaverse, Mycenae was the most important city in Greece during the Late Bronze Age, which is when Herakles would have lived if he were real. It had fallen into ruin by the time of the Romans, who treated its ruins as a tourist attraction. Amphitryon was a member of Mycenae's royal house.
