Huge statues are shown in the early morning at the tomb of King Antiochus on top of Mount Nemrut near Adiyaman, southeastern Anatolia, Turkey. Nemrut (Nemrut Dagi) is a 2,134m high mountain, notable for its tomb, which was probably built for king Antiochus Theos of Kommagene who believed he was a descendant of Apollo in the first part of the first century BC. On two sides of the mountaintop terraces were set up for statues representing Apollo, Fortuna, Heracles and Zeus. The Mount Nemrut ruins were discovered in 1881 and declared a UN World Heritage Site in 1987.
