Theodosius's Obelisk

The obelisk (originally commissioned by Egyptian Pharaoh Thutmose III, 1549-1503 BC) was probably brought to Constantinople in the 4th century AD, maybe by Constantine the Great. It was too large to raise, but in 390 Theodosius the Great finally had it put on its present location. Four blocks supporting it show the Emperor and his family in the Hippodrome.
