Transcript of 5 Wonders of the Ancient Greek World

The Greek Wonders of the Ancient World
Five of the seven wonders of the ancient world are located in, or inspired by Greece. These include three through seven: the statue of Zeus at Olympia, The temple of Artemis at Ephesus, The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, The colossus of Rhodes, and the lighthouse of Alexandria.
III: The statue of Zeus at Olympia
The Statue of Zeus at Olympia was a giant seated figure, about 42 ft tall, made by the Greek sculptor Phidias around 435 BC, and built in the sanctuary of Zeus. It was made of ivory plates and gold panels over a wooden framework. It represented the god Zeus sitting on an elaborate cedar wood throne decorated with ebony, ivory, gold and precious stones. It was eventually destroyed during the 5th century AD. No copy of the statue has ever been found, and details of its form are known only from ancient Greek descriptions and representations on coins.
IV: The temple of Artemis at Ephesus
The Temple of Artemis was a Greek temple dedicated to the goddess Artemis. It was located in Ephesus, and was completely rebuilt three times before its eventual destruction in 401. Only foundations and fragments of the temple remain.

It was one of the tallest man-made structures in the world for many centuries. Badly damaged by three earthquakes between 956 and 1323, it then became abandoned. It was the third longest surviving ancient wonder.
