Philopappos Hill is situated north-west of the Acropolis. The hill was named after Philopappos, a Roman consul who loved Athens and grandson of Syrian king Antiochus IV Epiphanes.

The actual mausoleum of Philopappos was discovered during excavations by archaeologist Konstantinos Travlos. Only one wall of the Mausoleum remains today, showing relief scenes from Philopappos’ life and an inscription.
