Satyros in Wikipedia
Satyros or Satyrus was an Ancient Greek architect of the 4th century BC. Along with Pythis (Pytheos), he designed the Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus, considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Mausolus, the satrap of Caria in southwest Anatolia died in 353 BC, and his widow, Artemisia II of Caria, built a huge marble tomb in his memory at Halicarnassus – now Bodrum, Turkey – which was completed about 350 BC. Its name, the Mausoleum, came to be the generic term for monumental tombs. It was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and was eventually destroyed by an earthquake.
