A very special project for the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus

I attended a banquet the other evening within the framework of the Bodrum International Mausoleum Workshop held in Bodrum, in the southwestern province of Muğla. The talk of the evening was the restitution project of King Mausolus' tomb that is listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
