Petit Futé's opinion on CONSTANTIN COLUMN

Vintage plate 2020

It was erected on May 11, 330 by Constantine the Great to celebrate the passage from Byzantium to New Rome. Made of porphyry, it is 35 m high but originally the top was surmounted by a statue of Apollo supposed to represent the emperor. It was said to have been encrusted with many relics of Christianity (nails of the Passion, piece of the true Cross, stick that Moses used to bring water out of the desert...) in order to protect the destiny of the city, but the various excavations did not allow them to be located.

Appelée aussi Çemberlitaş sütünü, c'est un des monuments byzantins les plus étranges d'Istanbul et les plus chargés d'histoire. Construite par Constantin vers 330, elle a été récemment restaurée.

Bonne nouvelle ! Après pas loin d'une décennie (sinon plus ? ) de restauration, la colonne se présente à nouveau toilettée de frais débarrassée de ses échafaudages depuis février. Le 11 mai 2010, elle célébrera son 1680ème anniversaire.
