Rhodos Harbour

The harbour of the Greek island Rhodos where the Colossus, one of the wonders of the antique world stood.

The Colossus was a bronze statue of the Greek sun god Helios, who stood with one leg on either pillar of the harbour entrance. He fell during an earthquake in 266 BC and remained there for 900 years until the Arabic army destoyed it to sell for scrap in 654 AD.
