The Column of Constantine or Burnt Column, Turkish literally Çemberlitaş Sütunu or Yanık Sütun, is a Roman monumental column constructed on the orders of the Roman emperor Constantine the Great in 330 AD. It commemorates the declaration of Byzantium, renamed by Constantine as Nova Roma, as the new capital city of the Roman Empire. The column is located on Yeniçeriler Avenue, along the old Divan Road or Divan Yolu, the Road to the Imperial Council of Topkapı Palace, between Sultanahmet and Beyazıt Square, known as Forum Tauri in the Roman period. The column was dedicated on May 11, 330 AD, with a mix of Christian and pagan ceremonies.
