shaped like a spearhead, Rhodes was historically famous for the Colossus of
Rhodes (then, one of Seven Wonders of the World).This grand statue of the sun-god Helios no
longer exists, but is documented as being 107 ft in height, built on two large
pillars at the entrance of the city.It is
not known how the statue was built, around 300 BC, but it is believed to
have been one of the largest statues of the ancient world.Rhodes has been inhabited since Neolithic
times, and it is believed the island is named after the rhoda, a pink
hibiscus native to the island.At one
point in history, Rhodes had strong ties with the Egyptians Ptolemies in
Alexandria, and passed through many different hands, through many different
wars over time.Around the 3rd Century
BC, the city developed into a maritime, commercial and cultural center and its
coins were in circulation almost everywhere in the Mediterranean.Rhodes was known as a city of philosophy,
science, literature and rhetoric-- and even shared masters with
Alexandria.In 164 BC, Rhodes signed a treaty
with Rome, and became an educational center for Roman noble families, and was
especially noted for its teachings of rhetoric.
