    Purpose to keep treasures on it but it's a legend. More plaubisle it was like a mausoleum and a temple. Interior has square burial chambers carved in into the cliff

    It sure looks the same to me...
    The entire monument, seen from the southeast. It was an enormous construction (24¾ meters long) with two large doors in the west and east (extreme left, and right) and a hall between them. A third gate was to the south. From here, one could walk to the Apadana.http://www.livius.org/a/iran/persepo...llnations.html
    The second phase, between 490-480 (purple on the map), consists of buildings started by Darius but completed in the first years of the reign of his son and successor, Xerxes (486-465). Actually, Persepolis is mostly the work of this king. He tells us in an inscription:
    When my father Darius went away from the throne, I became king on his throne by the grace of Ahuramazda. After I became king, I finished what had been done by my father, and I added other works.
    The apadana was finished and a small palace was added to the south of the apadana (#3). It is usually called Darius' palace, although he probably did not live to see the building finished. The ancient Persian name was Taçara, 'winter palace'. To the north of the apadana, the Gate of All Nations (#4; also known as Xerxes' gate) was built, which was guarded by a pair of large bulls in the west and lamassu's in the east (a lamassu is a bull with the head of a bearded man). Walls were constructed on the northern ridge of the terrace fortification. In front of Xerxes' gate was a monumental double-ramped stairway (#5), which was designed in such a way that one could only proceed slowly and with dignity.

    In the Middle Ages, based on a mis-translation from the Arabic term for bitumen. It became common practice to grind Egyptian mummies into a powder. Whatever for?

    You're almost certainly referring to the Antikythera device! It was found in a shipwreck on/near the Greek island Antikythera. It was discovered by Valerios Stais.

    Edit: Sorry Davide Cool.I was responding to Subuatai,,thinking I broke the rules since I am new.However,you are the thread starter and you make the rules.Great thread by the way My opinion is that things would go along more efficiently if people also make a question after they respond,as long as they are sure of their answer.You apparently agreed, so there you go
