Photographer's Note

A northerly view of Sultanahmet Plaza, which used to be called At Meydanı (Horse Plaza) during the Ottoman times. The term was probably an allusion to the Hippodrome of the Roman times.

Close to the right edge of the frame is the Serpentine Column, part of an ancient Greek sacrificial tripod, originally in Delphi and relocated to Constantinople by Constantine the Great in 324. The tripod had been built to commemorate the Greeks who fought and defeated the Persian Empire at the Battle of Plataea (479 BC).
