Which Wonder of the World was available to look at only for 50 years?

The Colossus Of Rhodes. It was built around 300 BC on the Greek island of Rhodes, and collapsed around 222 BC during a strong earthquake. Its fragments had been lying on the island for more than a thousand years until they were sold by the Arabs (who seized Rhodes in 977) to a merchant who, as described in one of the chronicles, loaded 900 camels with these fragments.
