quadriga

The fourth crusade was largely a Venetian enterprise so it was to here that the Venetian Lion’s share of the spoils came. The quadriga, the four horses that symbolise the power of Constantinople are here both in reality (inside) and in replica (outside, overlooking the Piazza). An educated trawl through the west front of San Marco is like a tour of the nicer bits of Byzantium, so much of it festoons this 13th century addition to the basilica. (45.434403,12.33932) It appears to follow the design pioneered by the Church of the Holy Apostles, once located on the great hill now surmounted by the Fatih Camii.
