CAUNOS

 
 
         

All pre-Greek people of Anatolia built beautiful monumental tombs associated with some form of ancestor worship. The Lycians developed this form of art to perfection and the entire landscape of Lycia is still dotted with these fascinating funerary monuments. The most recent count has revealed one thousand and eighty-five examples still intact, divided among four types: monumental or heroon-type tombs (six known), pillar tombs (35), sarcophagi (60) and rock-cut house-type tombs (950).
