    A correct guess at this point would be kind of a Pyrrhic victory, wouldn't you say?

    I wouldn't use the term "Pyrrhic Victory" for a correct guess at this point.
    Can you tell where that monument is located?

    It's the ancient theater of Dodona in Epirus, Muizer's pyrrhic victory remark was a play on that.

    aye, tbh I think we've got too few participants to keep this going

    IIRC pyrrhic victories were achieved in Italy, so I missed the play.

    Ancient theater at Dodona is correct, lol may have the ground, unless we choose to close this down.
