Mausoleum, Glanum

The mausoleum tower at Glanum, which would have once stood alongside many other funerary monuments, dates to c. 40 BCE. It has traditionally been attributed to the three Julius brothers of Julius Caesar’s family but the names (Sectus, Lucius, and Marcus Gaius) are probably only coincidental.
