Face of the Day


From “Anatolian Civilisations”, 1983.

Head of King Antiochus I Theos of Commagene on top of Mount Nemrut. In 62 BC, he built on the mountain top a tomb-sanctuary flanked by huge statues (8–9 m/26–30 ft high) of himself, two lions, two eagles and various Greek, Armenian, and Iranian gods.

In 1987, Mount Nemrut was made a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
