The Goths Column Istanbul

The Goths Column Istanbul
This 15 metre granite column can be found in Gulhane Park overlooking Seraglio Point ( Sarayburnu ) and has a Corinthian column perched on its top. Nicephorus Gregoras, a Byzantine historian, stated that it once carried a statue of Byzas who was the founder of Byzantium.  
On its base is a Latin inscription that reads “To Fortune, who returns by reason of the victory over the Goths”, but it is unclear whether it was erected in the reign of Claudius II Gothicus (268-270 or Constantine the Great (324-337) as both were victorious against the Goths.
