[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Memorable sculptures that are to be seen to one side of the Basilica San Marco.
We visited Venice many years ago, and these sculptures have stayed with me, in my memory since then;I found and still find them quite charming.

This sculptured group in porphyry,[4th century Egyptian] is thought to represent Diocletian,Maximian, Valerian and Constance.Collectively the tetrarchs, appointed by Diocletian to help rule the Roman Empire.

Thanks for looking.

Together.....forever.

I can always admire any works of yester year, to try and feel and understand how they managed to create pieces like this.
Looks like they have been moved from somewhere else.
