|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.
