Philopappos Hill and Monument, Athens: 29 reviews and 61 photos
The Philopappos Monument is the tomb of a member of the royal family of a small Hellenistic kingdom in southeastern Turkey and northern Syria. The Roman emperor Vespasian annexed the kingdom to the Roman Empire and the royal family was sent into exile. Philopappos lived in Athens and became an Athenian citizen.
Since the Athenians allowed him to be buried in this very elaborate mausoleum right opposite the Acropolis because he was an important benefactor of the ancient city of Athens.
