Extreme southwestern Anatolia, opposite the Isle
of Rhodes. In ancient times, this place held one of the Seven Wonders of the
World, the tomb of the eleventh listed ruler, which construction gave its name
to all succeeding constructions of like nature: Mausoleum. Like many
impoverished mountain countries, its best-known export in ancient times were its
young men, as mercenaries. See also, Miletus.
