Column of the Goths, Constantinople

Column of the Goths, Gulhane Park, Istanbul, Turkey. Attributed to either Clodius Gothicus II or Constantine the Great, as both had notable victories over the Goths. Probably the oldest monument in the city. It is located on a hill behind the Topkapi Place overlooking the Golden Horn and Sea of Marmara.
Yeah, I had to show up during the worst weather in 33 years. Snow for 3 days straight. Although, it was beautiful walking through the park while the snow softly fell and hardly anyone around.
