The hill of Philopappos or hill of the Muses, as it was called in antiquity, is located opposite of the Acropolis. On its top is the burial monument built by the Athenians in 114-116 AD, to honor their benefactor, the exiled ruler of Syria, Gaius Julius Antiochus Philopappos, who settled in Athens and became an Athenian citizen assuming public and religious duties.
