Obelisk

Byzantine Hippodrome, Istanbul, Turkey

"This 3500-year-old Obelisk of Theodosius, brought from Aswan, Egypt to Constantinople in
390 AD is one of three obelisks (including an ancient Greek one) which stood in the
Byzantine Hippodrome in Istanbul." --David

Thanks to David for phooning (and for the photo idea).
