Photograph of a painting of a landscape view in Lycia, Greece. There is a body of water in the foreground, with two people seated in a boat beside the water's edge. In the middle ground, on the right, is a structure that resembles that Tomb of Payava.

The Tomb of Payava is a stone sarcophagus that was discovered in Lycia in 1838. Three of the four tiers of the tomb were brought to England in 1844 and is on display in the British Museum.
