  Nemrud Dag
by chrisvandenbroucke

Nemrud Dag is the name of the mountain where King Antiochus mounted a tomb.

On both sides of the top of the hill, he planted one row of immense statues, representing Gods.
This way he overlooked his whole kingdom and wanted to keep all possible concurrents as friends.
