Some mismatched Byzantine things

Some mismatched Byzantine things

Near the so-called Goth’s Column in Gülhane Park are some Byzantine remains, decorated by columns assembled from pieces found in the area (41.015114,28.985415). There are records of three possible structures in the region: The Orphanage of St Paul and the churches of St Demetrios and St Menas. The pieces in these photos are probably from the orphanage. The area is lovely in spring when it is an ocean of tulips in a part of the park that is relatively sparsely populated.

The three churches at the point of Saray Burnu, from a plan of Constantinople by Giovanni Vavassore of Venice, 1520.

The Archaeological Museum isn't committing itself but seems to indicate that this is likely to be a church from the Orphanage of St Paul.
