In our recent paper on Bodrum and Karian heritage, we noted the general absence of local street or place names named after Maussollos and/or Artemisia.
Well, things change quickly in Bodrum sometimes. In Summer 2020, no less than two exhibition halls were inaugurated by Bodrum Municipality; one named after Maussollos and the other, Artemisia (some images below). The Halicarnassus Rowing Club also has a new boat named “Artemisia” that was put out to sea in 2021. Thanks to Lacin (Karaoz) for the tips.
The last bit of Bodrum news is well-intentioned but a little creepy: The municipality recently used the brother-and-sister team of Maussollos and Artemisia for their valentine’s greetings. Bodrum – the “city of immortal love.”
