The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, located in Asia Minor (in modern day Turkey). Built in 353 BC by Pythius as the tomb of Carian leader Mausolos, the forty meter high walls boasted pieces from the acclaimed sculptors Bryaxis, Leochares, Scopas and Timotheus.

However, earthquakes throughout the 11th and 15th centuries destroyed the mausoleum, but some pieces were recovered by the British Museum.
