The tomb was located on Ibn al-Athir street in Mosul. According to some historians it belongs to Ali ibn al-Athir, a noted 12th-13th century medieval historian. The exterior of the tomb was destroyed by ISIS in June 2014. The original tombstone had been removed to a museum well before the incident.
