A 2nd century BCE observer, the mathematician Philo of Byzantium, wrote a short account entitled De septem mundi miraculis, The Seven Sights of the World. They are The Great Pyramid of Giza, The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, The Statue of Zeus at Olympia, The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, The Colossus of Rhodes, and The Lighthouse of Alexandria.
