The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, as seen by text-to-image algorithms fed with ancient texts.

“In the house of Croesus, which the Sardians call Gerusia, established for the repose and comfort of the citizens in their old age, as also in the house of Mausolus, a very powerful king of Halicarnassus, though all the ornaments are of Proconnesian marble, the walls are of brick, are remarkably sound at the present day, and the plastering with which they are covered is so polished that they sparkle like glass.” Vitruvius, On Architecture, II, 8.

"The one [tomb] at Halicarnassus was made for Mausolus, king of the city, and it is of such vast size, and so notable for all its ornament, that the Romans in their great admiration of it call remarkable tombs in their country - Mausolea” Pausanias, CE 170, Description of Greece, Book VIII, 16

“The building was rectangular, not square, surrounded by a colonnade of thirty-six columns. There was a pyramidal superstructure receding in twenty four steps to the summit.” Pliny the Elder, The Natural History, Book XXXVI, 30-31
