Clue 2

subject:    A poem from sunny climbs


Near Bodrum lies an ancient kingdom,

Taking cues from ancient Greece,

Protected by a strategic bay,

A fallen leader in splendour lay.

On a globe, the site you’ll find,

Apollo will light your path to knowledge,

Whilst the letter you seek lives on,

As the beginning of the end,

A tribute in words to those who lie,

Like that ancient ruler.

Not Wordsworth perhaps but I’m think it is not without value.

– your faithful servant, Hillary

    Ok, I get which 7th Wonder this is but the link to Apollo and the letter clue -as the beginning of the end, is obscure. I think I have the word – does the clue mean that the first and last letter are the same? But the link to Apollo is still obscure – or may be I have the wrong word?

      The letter is simply the beginning of something to do with the end (so the letters at the beginning and end of the relevant word are not necessarily the same). Apollo is there to guide and confirm your thoughts on the Wonder but not necessarily to the indicate the word you are looking for.

      There may be a nearby line in the clue to help you find the word though…
