View of the funerary monument of Laomedon, a naval officer of Alexander the Great, that is dated to the late fourth century B.C.  Although destroyed, it was rebuilt from fragments found in the area in 1936.  It is sited close to the large ancient city of Amphipolis — on the east bank of the Strymon River.

 

It was situated on the Via Egnatia on which Paul traveled several times.  This monument would have been 350 years old by the time Paul would have seen it.
