Mausolus was the ruler of Caria (377-353 BC). After his death a great tomb was built at Halicarnassus.

The Mausoleum stood approximately 45 m (148 ft) in height, and each of the four sides was adorned with sculptural reliefs created by each one of four Greek sculptors  Leochares, Bryaxis, Scopas of Paros and Timotheus. The finished structure was considered to be such an aesthetic triumph that Antipater of Sidon identified it as one of his Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

After its demolition, the rocks were used to contruct Bodrum Castle by Rhodes Knights. The site and a few remains can still be seen in the Turkish town of Bodrum.
