If you turn right as you come out of the bottom station of the Tünel, cross the road and take the first street towards the shore, you will see a messy passageway on your right. Through the archway lies the fabulously unkempt Rüstem Paşa Hanı (or Kurşunlu Han), a lovely early Ottoman collection of workplaces.

On the left as you pass through the archway is an upturned Corinthian capital with a water pump attached to it. It has probably been there since the han was built in the mid 16th century. According to Freely, the capital probably came from the Latin church of St Michael, which previously stood on the site. (41.022472,28.972519)
