Hecatomnus Tomb: Video

HABER: Bakan G�nay Lahiti İnceledi haberi

Even if you can't read the Turkish text, it's worth watching this long video to see the tomb in detail. David Meadows is most impressed by how the looters got in - I am fascinated by the details of the paintings, and how much the deceased, believed to be Hecatomnus, looks like the so-called Mausolus statue from the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus.
