The Colossus of Rhodes was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Constructed from iron and bronze, it was over 30 metres high. It was built to commemorate the failure of the Siege of Rhodes (ended 304 BC). The architect was Chares of Lindos. The Colossus was destroyed in an earthquake in 226 BC.
