The northern necropolis of Hierapolis in Phrygia (modern-day Pamukkale, Turkey) with many different types of tombs. This extensive necropolis of about 1,200 tombs extends for over two kilometres (1.2 miles) from the northern to the eastern and southern sections of the old city. Most tombs date from the late Hellenic period, but there are also a considerable number from the Roman and early Christian periods.
