Real PEPLUM : Hercules carved into limestone in Turkey

Carole Raddato is someone I follow on Twitter and Flickr, and recently she and her boyfriend Alan visited Turkey and took some pictures of this amazing old carving of Hercules. She wrote :

'Unfinished relief of Hercules carved into a limestone block in a quarry outside of Nicaea, 3rd century AD, Iznik, Turkey'

Cool stuff!
