Walled Obelisk Database image

Alternately called the "Walled Column" or "Constantine's Column", this Obelisk stands proudly in the center of the old Hippodrome. Though it seems to fit the style of the original structure, it was actually built some 500 years later. In the tenth century it was repaired and further augmented by Constantine VII, thus earning its current name.

After the Ottoman conquest, when the Hippodrome was finally and fully abandoned, the obelisk became a favorite location for the Janissaries to train and show off their strength in climbing contests.
