First we hear about the Artemesion … now it’s the Mausoleum the erstwhile wonder … the incipit from Hurriyet:
The mayor of Bodrum has announced that the city will build a model of King Mausolus’ Mausoleum, which is considered seven wonders of the ancient world.
Bodrum Mayor Mazlum Ağan, who has held his post for two terms, is running again this month as the People’s Republican Party, or CHP, candidate. Talking about his projects, Ağan said they will build a replica of King Mausolus’ Mausoleum, which is currently on display at the British Museum.
Stating they would erect the mausoleum near the 2,500-year-old Ancient Theatre, Ağan said: “The place of King Mausolus’ Mausoleum is being visited by thousands of tourists every year. However, they can only see remains of the mausoleum. For that reason, we will build a model mausoleum on a one-to-one scale of the original mausoleum.”
