A cistern has been found during the archaeological excavation of King Hecatomnus' grave in Milas district of Muğla province in southwestern Turkey.

The vaulted and rectangular-shaped cistern is located 100 meters from Hecatomnus' grave.

"We suppose that it might be only one part of a complex of cisterns" the director of the Milas Museum, Ali Sinan Özbey, said, adding that this region will be opened for visitors as an archaeo-park when the excavation of the 2,400-year-old remains of Hecatomnus is finished.
