The Column of Arcadius Istanbul

The Column of Arcadius Istanbul


Dating from the Byzantine era this rather unusual relic can be found on Haseki Kadin Street off  Cerrahpasa Road in the built up area near the Haseki Hurrem Mosque in Cerrahpasa district of Istanbul .

History of Arcadius Column

In 402 Emperor Arcadius erected the column that had been modelled on the Trajan Column in Rome.
 He placed it on the summit of the Seventh Hill in the Forum of Arcadius, as this area was known, to commemorate his victories and it was covered in reliefs illustrating expeditions taken by him.  
In 421 Theodosius II, Arcadius son, placed an equestrian statue of his father on the top that unfortunately fell and was destroyed during an earthquake in 704. The column was then demolished in 1715 for fear of it collapsing on neighbouring properties and all that was left is the tall base you see today (in between a house and car park almost hidden by a tree), and the area surrounding it later became the Avrat Pazari ( Women’s Slave Market ).
