The column of Phocas in the Roman Forum, Rome. The column is 13 metres high and stands on a brick base surrounded by marble steps. The inscription on the base reveals that the column was dedicated to Phocas, a centurion who became emperor of Byzantium in 602 CE. A statue of the emperor would have once stood on top of the column. It is the last Roman monument constructed in the forum.
