Nemrut Dag

Nemrut Dag (or Nemrud Dagi), the tomb of King Antiochos Epiphanes, is located in Southeast Turkey. It consists of a 2150 meter-high pile of fist-sized pebbles, surrounded by statuary bearing Greek and Persian styles. The site is home to both the world’s largest horoscope, and the largest existing statue of Zeus. Though clear inscriptions of the burial instructions are present, no one has yet been able to determine exactly where in the tumulus the Commagene King is buried.
