National Archaeological Museum / Archaeological Site of Tiryns:

Murals from both the later and earlier palace of Tiryns. Female figures in procession bringing offerings to a deity, women on charriots observing a hunt, while the hounds have already overpowered the boars and an attendant on foot.

The presence of women in religious processions as well as hunts is a sign of their elevated status in the Mycenaean world.
