Athens - The long-lost 'Theseus Ring,' a gold ring found in the Plaka district of Athens in the 1950s and generally dismissed as a fake, has been identified by Greek archaeologists as a genuine 15th century BC artifact, reports said Wednesday.

The Greek press had reported the discovery of a gold signet ring, with dimensions 2.7 x 1.8 cm dating from the Minoan period, and the National Archaeological Museum wanted to purchase it for 75,000 euros from the woman who owned it.

There was a huge debate about its authenticity until a panel of experts from the Culture Ministry declared the piece to be genuine.

The ring, which depicts a bull-leaping scene, is believed to come from the area of Anafiotika in the Athens ancient city centre of Plaka. The scene also includes a lion to the left and a tree to the right.

According to ancient Greek mythology, Prince Theseus was the son of King Aegeus of Athens. During this period, the Minoans under the leadership of King Minos, who lived on the island of Crete, had a very strong navy and often attacked various Greek cities, including Athens.

It is becoming an ever more interesting time to live. Seeing time and time again, the Mythos being shown to have been TRUTH, as it has always claimed to be since it's Origin. In this Case, Greek Mythology. Afterall, Mythos is Truth in the Greek.

Here is also a Reference for review, should Theseus and the lore surrounding him be not known to you.

Troy was believed by everyone to be a myth. Until they actually found it, and discovered that it most likely did perish in some sort of long, seige warfare.

Sooner or later, they will discover Atlantis.
