The spot of the Nereid Monument, which was a 5th century BC monument decorated with statues of what were thought to be the Nereids. One nowadays seems to think they represented personifications of the sea winds instead. Thought to have been the tomb of a Lycian prince named Arbinas it was transported almost in full to the British Museum so all you see are some wall-like structures.
