Helios is the mythological Greek god of the sun. Legend says that every day he drives his chariot through the sky, giving warmth to the world. In order to honor a stunning, military victory, the people of Rhodes built a statue of Helios, which stood over a hundred feet tall, making it comparable in size to The Statue of Liberty.

The Colossus, as it was named, was built to overlook the great harbor of their island. After its completion in 280 B.C., the statue remained in place for more than fifty years before it fell in an earthquake. Due to superstition surrounding an ominous prophecy, the Colossus was not rebuilt but allowed to fall into ruin. Despite this, its impressive height and construction made it one of The Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

It’s easy to understand why the people of that time would appreciate the legendary role of Helios. Before electricity, the sun was the only major source of light. They needed it to see where they were going, to brighten their homes, and, most importantly, to make their crops grow. For, without the sun, they would have starved to death.
