Belevi mausoleum

On many occasions I passed nearby a mausoleum, the fame of which I was familiar with. However, being in some public transport to or from Selçuk, I never had a chance to get close. In 2015 I had, and was pretty annoyed to find a. the site closed, b. it was in a much more ruined state than I expected.

The Wikipedia has a fine article, from it I gather: "The Belevi Mausoleum, also known as the Mausoleum at Belevi is a Hellenistic monument tomb located in Turkey. The monument was the burial place of the Seleucid Greek King Antiochus II Theos who reigned 261–246 BC." But I should have read on to find it was never finished. As was a sarcophagus which I show in my Selçuk museum gallery, as well as some griffons found there too.
