Geocache Description:

The cache is a small tupper box, able to host small TBs, GCs and other small items. Its hide is a small cavelike hole on Philoupapou Hill.
From the cache you will have a breathtaking view of Acropolis and the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. Some climbing is required. Not good for small children.

The Philopappos Monument is an ancient Greek mausoleum and monument dedicated to Gaius Julius Antiochus Epiphanes Philopappos or Philopappus, (65–116 AD), a prince from the Kingdom of Commagene.
Philopappos died in 116, and his death caused great grief to his sister Julia Balbilla, citizens of Athens and possibly to the imperial family. As a dedication to honor the memory of Philopappos, Balbilla with the citizens of Athens erected a tomb structure on Mouseion Hill near the Acropolis of Athens. His marble tomb monument is still known as the Philopappos Monument, and the hill is today known as Philopappos Hill.
