448 TR - Nemrut Dağ (1987)

Brief Description

The mausoleum of Antiochus I (69–34 B.C.), who reigned over Commagene, a kingdom founded north of Syria and the Euphrates after the breakup of Alexander's empire, is one of the most ambitious constructions of the Hellenistic period. The syncretism of its pantheon, and the lineage of its kings, which can be traced back through two sets of legends, Greek and Persian, is evidence of the dual origin of this kingdom's culture.

这里是安提俄克斯一世(公元前69-34年)的陵墓。他当时统治着科马哥纳──亚利山大王国解体后在叙利亚北部和幼发拉底 河建立的王国,这是希腊时期最能体现勃勃雄心的建筑之一。这里的众神合一和王室血统可以溯源到希腊和波斯两个系列的传说中去,这一点反映了这一王国文化的 双重起源。
