A number of monumental, rupestral tombs at ancient Amaseia (modern Amasya in Turkey) among which 5 large ones are mentioned by Strabo and attributed to the kings. Mount Harşena and the Rock-tombs of the Pontic Kings were submitted to the Tentative World Heritage Lists in 2005 by the Permanent Delegation of Turkey to UNESCO.
