Why the Big Smile?

Sarcophagus means “flesh-eater.” In other words, the big stone box gobbles what’s left of you after you’re laid in it.

This dramatic example is in the Antalya Museum, a cheerful reminder of the region’s Roman past.

When you travel to Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, don’t miss the museum. Its collection of Roman and other artifacts from Turkey’s rich archeological past is outstanding.

The unfortunate buried in the “flesh-eater” may not be happy, but you will be.
