Rhodes, June 2015, © Maurer family archive

Colossus of Rhodes. It is not known what the statue really looked like. In some pictures (like in the one before, dated 1778, taken under CC from https://www.flickr.com/photos/crackdog/3073313268/ ) ships would pass underneath its body. In other pictures (like the one from 1880 under CC from wikipedia/commons/5/5f/Colosse_de_Rhodes_%28Barclay%29.jpg)
the statue just stood on one side of the harbor. Many other versions also exist.
