Caption: Mausoleum at Halicarnassus. Historical illustration of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, also known as the Tomb of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. This giant tomb was built between 353 and 350 BC at Halicarnassus (present day Bodrum, Turkey) for Mausolus, a Satrap (province governor) of the Persian Empire and Artemisia II of Caria, who was both his wife and his sister. It was designed by the Greek architects Satyros and Pythius of Priene and stood approximately 45 metres high, but was destroyed by successive earthquakes from the 12th to the 15th century. Image from Je Sais Tout magazine, France, December 1909.
