ΑΜΝΑ--The regional governor of Peloponnese on Thursday approved a 3.1-million-euro project to erect a state-of-the-art roof over the Mycenaean-era palace complex at Pylos, in Messιnia prefecture of the southwest Peloponnese.

 The archaeological site is popularly known as “the Palace of Nestor”, after the wise mythical king of Pylos in Homer's Iliad.
