The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the famous wonders of the ancient world, a tomb for the satrap Mausolus built in the 350s BC. The tomb was dismantled and used to buttress the fortifications of the Knights of Malta in the 1500s, causing problems for the archaologists who reconstructed the tomb from the fragments excavated in the 1850s. This paper explores the difficulties of that task and suggests an order for the sculptures set between its columns as well as the architectural design itself, showing the process by which this influential building's current structure was derived.
