Alexander & Seven Wonders of The World 1/2
The Seven Ancient Wonders The traditional list, though not the first or last, was made by Philo of Byzantium and written in 225 BC in his work "On the Seven Wonders". Earlier and later lists, written by the historian Herodotus (484 BCca. 425 BC), and the architect Callimachus of Cyrene (ca 305240 BC) at the Museum of Alexandria, survive only as references. The later version of a list of seven wonders was compiled by Antipater of Sidon, who described the structures in a poem around 140 BC: Great Pyramid of Giza Hanging Gardens of Babylon Statue of Zeus at Olympia Temple of Artemis at Ephesus Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus Colossus of Rhodes Lighthouse of Alexandria
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ištar-Tor (mehr Infos) & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ishtar_Gate (more Information) - Video und Bilder vom babylonischen Ištar-Tor/Video and pictures of the babylonian Ishtar-Gate. (Pergamon-Museum in Berlin) - Musik/Music: Wally Brill - A Loop In Time WIKIPEDIA (EN): The Ishtar Gate (Assyrian: ܕܵܪܘܲܐܙܲܐ ܕܥܵܐܫܬܲܪ translit: Darwaza D'Ishtar, Arabic:بوابة عشتار) was the eighth gate to the inner city of Babylon. It was constructed in about 575 BC by order of King Nebuchadnezzar II on the north side of the city. Dedicated to the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, the Gate was constructed of blue glazed tiles with alternating rows of bas-relief sirrush (dragons) and aurochs. The roof and doors of the gate were of cedar, according to the dedication plaque. Through the gate ran the Processional Way which was lined with walls covered in lions on glazed bricks (about 120 of them). Statues of the deities were paraded through the gate and down the Processional Way each year during the New Year's celebration. Originally the gate, being part of the Walls of Babylon, was considered one of the Seven Wonders of the world until, in the 6th century AD, it was replaced with the Lighthouse of Alexandria. A reconstruction of the Ishtar Gate and Processional Way was built at the Pergamon Museum in Berlin out of material excavated by Robert Koldewey and finished in the 1930s. It includes the inscription plaque. It stands 47 feet high and 100 feet wide (14 meters by 30 meters). The excavation ran from 1902-1914 and during that time 45 feet of the foundation of the gate was uncovered. The gate was in fact a double-gate. The part that is shown in the Pergamon Museum today is only the smaller frontal part, while the larger back part was considered too large to fit into the constraints of the structure of the museum. It is in storage. Parts of the gate and lions from the Processional Way are in various other museums around the world. Only three museums acquired dragons while lions went to several museums. The Istanbul Archaeology Museum has lions, dragons, and bulls. The Detroit Institute of Arts houses a dragon. The Röhsska Museum in Gothenburg, Sweden, has one dragon and one lion; the Louvre, the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Philadelphia, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Oriental Institute in Chicago, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Yale University Art Gallery of New Haven, Connecticut, each have lions. A smaller reproduction of the gate was built in Iraq under Saddam Hussein as the entrance to a museum that has not been completed. Damage to the reproduction gate has occurred since the Iraq war (see Effects of the U.S. military).

The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World is the first known list of the most remarkable man-made creations of classical antiquity, and was based on guide-books popular among Hellenic sight-seers and only includes works located around the Mediterranean rim. The number seven was chosen because the Greeks believed it to be magical. Many similar lists have been made, including lists for the Medieval World and the Modern World. And some great locations . . . The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World as depicted by 16th-century Dutch artist Marten HeemskerkContents [hide] Seven Wonders of the Ancient World The Great Pyramid of Giza, the only wonder of the ancient world still in existenceMain article: Seven Wonders of the Ancient World The historian Herodotus (484 BC--ca. 425 BC), and the scholar Callimachus of Cyrene (ca 305--240 BC) at the Museum of Alexandria, made early lists of "Seven wonders" but their writings have not survived, except as references. Their wonders included: Great Pyramid of Giza Hanging Gardens of Babylon Statue of Zeus at Olympia Temple of Artemis at Ephesus Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus Colossus of Rhodes Lighthouse of Alexandria The Greek category was not "Wonders" but "theamata", which translates closer to "must-sees". The list that we know today was compiled in the Middle Ages—by which time many of the sites were no longer in existence. Today, the only ancient world wonder that still exists is the Great Pyramid of Giza. See also: Eighth Wonder of the World Wonders of the Medieval World The Colosseum in Rome The Great Wall of China Taj MahalMany lists of "wonders of the world" are said to have existed during the Middle Ages, although it is unlikely that these lists originated at that time because the word medieval was not even invented until the Enlightenment-era, and the concept of a "Middle Age" did not become popular until the 16th century. Brewer's refers to them as "later list[s]" suggesting the lists were created after the Middle Ages. Many of the structures on these lists were built much earlier than the Medieval Ages, but were well known. These lists go by names such as "Wonders of the Middle Ages" (implying no specific limitation to seven), "Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages", "Medieval Mind" and "Architectural Wonders of the Middle Ages". Typically representative of the seven greatest wonders of the Medieval world are: StollCo Video Tampa Florida June 2008 Bill Stoll
Alexandria (Arabic: Al-Iskandariyah; Στίχοι: Άρης Δαβαράκης Μουσική: Ευανθία Ρεμπούτσικα Πρώτη εκτέλεση: Γιάννης Κότσιρας Άλλες ερμηνείες: Άλκηστις Πρωτοψάλτη Ο αλεξανδρινός ο καθαρός ο ουρανός The clear Alexandrian sky στον έρωτα είναι σαν διαμάντι ανθεκτικός is durable in love like a diamond κι όπως καθρεφτίζεται στη θάλασσα ζεστός and as is mirrored, warm, in the sea λες γιασαλάμ να κι ένας άξιος μισθός you say "yasalam" here is a worthy deed Βρε γιασαλάμ πού να το φανταστώ "Yasalam" how could I imagine τόσο γλυκό το φθινόπωρο αυτό such a sweet Autumn τούτος ο ουρανός ο φθινοπωρινός this Autumn sky είναι ο αυθεντικός ο αλεξανδρινός is the genuine Alexandrian sky Το ένα μου λιμάνι είναι δυτικό One of my ports is west το άλλο το παλιό ανατολικό the other old one is east έχω αεροδρόμιο στο βοριά I have an airport in the north κι ένα αρχαίο φάρο προς το νοτιά and an ancient lighthouse in the south Ναι ο ουρανός ο καθαρός ο αυθεντικός yes the clear genuine sky στην Αλεξάνδρεια είναι τόσο ανθεκτικός is so durable in Alexandria που όταν σκάει το κύμα δυνατά στο Κάιτ Μπέι that when the wave breaks in Kayt Bay παντάν παντάν βρε γιασαλάμ ο έρωτας λέει "padan padan yasalam" love says Γιασαλάμ θα πει τόσα χώρεσα "Yasalam" means I suffered so much που το δαίμονά μου συγχώρεσα that I forgave my demons για όλα του τα πάθη τα άγρια for all his wild passions γιασαλάμ θα πει Αλεξάνδρεια "yasalam" means Alexandria. Alexandria (Arabic: Al-Iskandariyah; popularly known as "Alex") is a major city in northern Egypt. Founded by (and named for) Alexander the Great in 332 BC, Alexandria quickly became one of the greatest cities in the Creco-Roman world. It was center of Greek scholarship, hosting such figures as Euclid, Archimedes, Plotinus, Ptolemy and Eratosthenes. It was famed for its great library (which has recently been rebuilt) and the Pharos lighthouse, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It is also the birthplace of the famous poet Constantine Kavafi. To distinguish from the rest 31 cities in the world called Alexandria, became known as Alexandria of Egypt and today is called Iskanderia. Αλεξάνδρεια Το μαργαριτάρι της Μεσογείου και λίκνο του πολιτισμού για χιλιάδες χρόνια. Η πόλη που γεννήθηκε και μεγαλούργησε ο Καβάφης και την εξύμνισε πλήθος ποιητών και καλλιτεχνών. Η δεύτερη μεγαλύτερη πόλη της Αιγύπτου και το κυριότερο λιμάνι της. Κτίσθηκε από τον Έλληνα αρχιτέκτονα Δινοκράτη υπό τις διαταγές του Μεγάλου Αλεξάνδρου το 332 π.Χ. Η πόλη, καθιστώντας αθάνατο το όνομα του Αλεξάνδρου, γρήγορα αναπτύχθηκε ως μία πολιτική, πολιστική και οικονομική μητρόπολη, τα ερείπια της οποίας σώζονται μέχρι σήμερα. Ήταν η φημισμένη πρωτεύουσα της δυναστείας των Πτολεμαίων και το μέρος όπου είχε ανεγερθεί ένα ακόμη από τα επτά θαύματα του κόσμου, ο Φάρος της Αλεξάνδρειας. Για να διακρίνεται από τις υπόλοιπες 31 Αλεξάνδρειες έγινε γνωστή ως Alexandrea ad Aegyptum («Αλεξάνδρεια της Αιγύπτου») και σήμερα ονομάζεται Iskanderia.
