The tower is constructed in a shore berth, towed out to position, and then sunk to the seabed, where the base is finally filled with sand. Having been completed in 1531, it is one of the oldest lighthouses still in use. In the days of wooden ships with sails, the wind and waves could easily push them against the rocks and wreck them.

The only knock I have is that the tour guide couldn't really seem to answer any of the questions that were asked. As such, in maple, they weigh in at about 65 pounds. It was located on the southwest end of Unimak Island and on the east side of the Unimak Pass into the Bering Sea. Charts average 8 �� x 10� in size and are overall clean, may have very light stain, with only one light original fold, light age toning. According to Pliny the Elder, it cost 800 talents to build the monument. �A talent was a weight of silver, 581 pounds (25.4 kg) avoirdupois, i.e. about 928 ounces of silver (26,308 grams); this multiplied by 800 gives a cost of 742,400 ounces (21,046,668 grams) which works out at just over � 4 million (at 1987 prices of silver bullion)� [Clayton & Price, 1988]. ����������� Homer was the first to mention Pharos as an island in the Odyssey.� Just like Pliny the Elder, he locates the island of Pharos a day�s sail from Egypt.� One legend tells of the beautiful Helen visiting the island with her husband Menelaus.� Finding an old man, he asked him what exact island they had landed on.� �The man replied that it was Pharaoh�s.� Menelaus misheard and requestioned, �Pharos?� to which the old man replied in the affirmative, repeating the word pharaoh in the old Egyptian pronunciation which brought it out as �Prouti�s�, which Menelaus misinterpreted as �Proteus�, a name he knew as that of the sea deity to whom Poseidon, the Greek God of the Sea, had granted the gift of prophecy.� Therefore the combination of an old man�s diction and Menelaus� mishearing gave the world the name of Pharos for the island with its patron deity being Proteus.� In fact, when Alexander arrived in Egypt, the island of Pharos was simply known as the home of the sea-god Proteus.� [Clayton & Price, 1988] ����������� What is actually known about the Pharos and its specific physical appearance is actually very little.� According to Epiphanes, it was approximately 560 meters (1839 feet) high!� It was said that its light was visible from the sea at 35 miles (56 kilometers).� Yet other sources, such as Lucian of Samosata (115-180 AD) extend that to 300 miles (482.7 kilometers)!� It was a three-story structure with an approximate height of 100 meters (333 feet): 60 meters (198 feet) for the first stage (quadrangular), 30 meters (99 feet) for the second (octagonal) and 10 meters (33 feet) to the tip of Zeus Soter�s scepter topping the third stage (cylindrical).� Despite the various differences in representations, one thing is certain: the basic form of the representation of the Pharos was always the same. ����������� One story relates that a friend of the sultan Ahmed Ibn Touloun convinced the latter that Alexander the Great had hidden treasures under the lighthouse.
