Nemrut, 2130 m mountain SE Turkey; at the summit, a number of large statues are erected around a royal tomb from the 1st century BC. These statues were once seated, with names of each god inscribed on them. The heads of the statues have at some stage been removed from their bodies, and they are now scattered throughout the site.
