Jülyanüs Sütunu (Column of Julian)

Jülyanüs Sütunu (Column of Julian) Review

A stone's throw from the Temple of Augustus and Rome, in a small traffic circle surrounded by government buildings, is the Column of Julian. It commemorates a visit by Julian the Apostate (Rome’s last pagan emperor), who passed through town in 362 en route to his death in battle with the Persians. The column, usually topped by a stork's nest, has 15 fluted drums and a Corinthian capital.
