Detail of battling warriors from the west wall of the Heroon of Trysa frieze in the Ephesos Museum, Vienna. The Heroon of Trysa dates to 380 BCE and was discovered in 1841 CE by an Austrian school teacher, Julius August Schönborn. A heroön is defined as a shrine constructed in the classical world over and around the tomb of a respected ruler and used for their veneration and hero worship. The Heroon of Trysa was dismantled and taken to Vienna by Austrian archaeologists in 1884 CE.
