They’ve called the famous Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World because of this. The monument was built by Artemisia as a tomb for her husband Mausolus, king at that age (335 bC). Unfortunately a series of earthquakes destroyed the monument around 1400 aC, leaving it in ruins.
