This is based on a picture I took of the central sanctuary of the Temple of Bel when I visited Palmyra as a student decades ago. This was blown up by Isis in August 2015. At the same time they tortured and beheaded the Director of Antiquities for Palmyra of 40 years, Dr Khaled al-Asaad. He had stayed at his post to defend the site and its treasures. He was 81.
