Title

Column of Marcus Aurelius and Faustina [I'm not sure this was the official name of the monument]

Description

This column is located in the Piazza Colonna on Via del Corso. It is made of marble and covered in relief similar to that of Trajan’s column. Though unlike Trajan's column, this relief is less-cluttered and centralizes the emperor more. In the 16th century, a bronze statue of St. Paul with a sword was placed on top. The inside is hollow with a spiral staircase, and the column is made of drums of marble.
