Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

The historian Herodotus (484 – ca. 425 BCE), and the scholar Callimachus of Cyrene (ca. 305 – 240 BCE) at the Museum of Alexandria, made early lists of seven wonders but their writings have not survived, except as references. The seven wonders included:


Great Pyramid of Giza












Hanging Gardens of Babylon














Statue of Zeus at Olympia













Temple of Artemis at Ephesus


















Mausoleum of Maussollos at Halicarnassus











Colossus of rhodes












Lighthouse of Alexandria
