The famous tomb of the king Maussollos of Halicarnassus known as the Mausoleum of Maussollo, which served as tomb for the king and his wife was constructed by 4 of the most important artists of their time and was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
The tomb was a rectangular building of around 120 feet (40 m) for 100 feet (30 m). The tomb was erected on a hill overlooking the city. The building was in an enclosed patio in whose center was a stone platform on which the Mausoleum sat. There, had a beautiful staircase flanked by stone lions which led to the top of the platform. Many statues of gods and goddess ornamented the outer walls. Each corner of the tomb was guarded by statues of warriors mounted on horseback.
