The Mausoleum of the Julii at Glanum, southern France, is one of the best preserved mausoleums of the Roman era. Based on its artistic style, the Mausoleum was probably built between 40 and 20 BCE. An inscription mentions that three Julius brothers - Sextius, Marcus, and Lucius, sons of Gaius - dedicated the monument to their ancestors.
