Myra Theatre: Helios and Selene

Helios the sun and his counterpart Selene the moon were part of the decoration of the Parthenon pediments. These motifs could also be used on their own, and single central pedimental busts were popular for the decoration of Lycian tombs. I'm not sure if these come from a naiskos (small shrine) or, more likely, a doorway.
