Knitted Obelisk or Orme Dikilitas Istanbul
Apart from the famous Obelisk of Theodosius or Dikilitas, Knitted Obelisk is also situated in the Hippodrome . Located at its southern end and not much is known about it or how it gained its name although it is said to have been placed there by either Constantine the Great or Theodosius I. It was originally covered in bronze plates provided by Constantine VII Porphyryogenitus (913-959) but these were removed by the Fourth Crusaders who thought they were made of gold.
