Images & Words : Hidden Treasure

A box without hinges, key, or lid, yet golden treasure inside is hid.
J. R. R. Tolkien 

In the history  , in some civilizations like Greek , Roman Lykian important peoplelike kings and princes were burried in big block tombs with the precous things they have used when they were alive. They were destroyed by the treasure hunters.
Here are two pictures to show how big the tomb is and how it was destroyed which are in Olympos in Antalya .


  1. Terrific photos of the hidden treasure troves. Tolkien is one of my fav authors. Thanks for your comment, dear.

    My entry

  2. Hidden Treasures are exciting when you find them too. Great Photos Fatos.

    I am hunting for mine now.

  3. We sometimes can see their treasures in the museums, if luckily.

    Nice post.

    1. Thank you for your visit . You are right we are lucky to have some .

  4. It is very sad that people would take those treasures :(

  5. Not hidden treasures, but stolen treasures. Good photos.

  6. Nice photos, Fatos... It's so sad to know that some treasures are not respected...
    Thanks for your visit.

  7. Sad when you know the history but at least as your photos show there is still some left behind for posterity.
    Good quote there too Fatos.

  8. Interesing post. Perhaps if it wasn't for such hidden treasures, our knowledge of the history of our civilisation would not be so much.

  9. I love the photos we can take of what's left of the past.... they had amazing detail and craftsmanship to the work, and the treasures were personal and valuable ~ even though none are left. I never got to Olympos, but saw much in the western region of Turkey.

  10. Love the quote! It is sad how greed some how has no time for sentiments ... interesting photo's ... love reading various bits about different histories ....

  11. I like your idea for this theme... beautiful pictures and quote!
