Remains of Midea.

Midea (Greek: Μιδέα) is the name given to a Bronze Age citadel standing above the village of the same name in the Argolid in Greece. The citadel is one of the largest and best preserved Mycenaean citadels. A tholos tomb and cemetery of chamber tombs at nearby Dendra is associated with the site.

Excavations were started by the Swedish archaeologist Axel W. Persson and have been continued regularly by the Swedish School of Archaeology at Athens.
