The island of Rhodes was famous in ancient times for the Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The figure of Helios (God of Sun) stood over 107 feet high, and was built between 292 and 280 BC to commemorate their victory against siege by Demetrius Poliorcetes and his army. The statue was destroyed in 226 BC by earthquake. Some suggest Mandraki harbor as one of the sites the statue could have been located, but there are no clues to show where it really was.
