Colossus of Rhodes Location

No one is certain where the Colossus stood. Some say it was astride the entrance to Mandraki, Rhodes' yacht harbor, and that two modern-day bronze deer atop tall pillars mark his stance.

Others declare that the Colossus was never astride anything and merely stood beside the harbor entrance, or that it was among the 3000 pieces of treasure the Roman general Cassius sent home.

It is not sure if the ruins of the Colossus survived to this day or all were taken away by Syrians. Archaeologists conducted searches on the seabed and on land as well but no conclusive remains of the colossus were found.
