A statue of Turgut Reis.

Known in different languages under such names as Dragut or Darghouth, the original name in Turkey is Turgut Reis (reis = admiral) or less commonly Torgut Reis as his name appears in several old Turkish and foreign resources. You iknow about the Wikipedia: this is probably all veryu correct, maybe not.
