Serpent Column

Found in scenarios: Byzantine Istanbul

Raise the image of his new capital, Constantine and his successors, especially Theodosius the Great, brought works of art from all over the empire to adorn it. The monuments were set up in the middle of the Hippodrome, the spina. The top was adorned with a golden bowl supported by three serpent heads. The bowl was destroyed or stolen during the Fourth Crusade. All that remains of the Delphi Tripod today is the base, known as the “Serpentine Column”.
