Head of Zeus by pre-Roman King Antiochus 64-38 BC, Mount Nimrod/Nemrut Dag, Malatya, Turkey.
A six-foot tall head of Zeus commemorates the lofty aspirations of pre-Roman King Antiochus (64-38 BC) at Mount Nimrod (Nemrut Dagi in Turkish), near Malatya, Turkey. Earthquakes toppled the stone heads from seated bodies long ago, but Mount Nemrut National Park may restore the site.
