This is the east side of the Nereid monument in the British Museum.  The tomb was built about 380 BC at Xanthos in south west Turkey, probably for a local ruler Arbinas and his family.

It's magnificent!
I wonder if this was a kind of monument Alexander had it in his mind for Hephaistion, except in much larger scale :)
