Rhodos - A settlement in Caria also known as Rhodes
Rhodes was an important slave-trading center, best known for The Colossus of Rhodes.

The Colossus of Rhodes, the sixth of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, was a huge statue of Helios measuring 32 meters (100 feet) high, built at Rhodes in 280 B.C. but destroyed by an earthquake later in that century.

It has inspired many later sculptures including the Statue of Liberty.
