Mount NimrodNemrut Dagi (Mt. Nimrod) is in a remote part of Turkey and home to Antiochus I's self-glorifying monument. He concluded that since his ancestors (Alexander the Great from his Greek mother's side  and Darius King of Kings from his Persian father's side) were 'gods', then he too must be a god. He is depicted shaking hands with Apollo, Zeus and Heracles as if he were being initiated into the "god's club" Over the centuries the huge statues have fallen victim to nature and their heads tumbled off. The site of the mountain range is a perfect setting for the 'Throne of the Gods'.
