A Dismantled Mausoleum

I am one of those who believes there is no burial to be found for Cleopatra VII, Mark Antony and more than likely Cesarean who's mummies would have potentially been used by Octavian's enemies including the Egyptian population as objects of veneration to destabilize Octavian's hold on Egypt.

It may have been more politically sound to have cremated all three and to have thrown their ashes into the Mediterranean.

The article has a number of fine pictures.
