|Description ||So called "Gothic" Column in the park of the Istanbul Topkapi Palace of the Sultans. It is on the site of ancient Byzantium and is the last ancient column from a Pagan temple standing in the open. All others have been reused in churches, mosques and cisterns or burned for lime.
As the Palace has a historical and touristic importance, it is unlikely any archaeology is going to be done on his site.
