Colonne di San Lorenzo

The Columns of San Lorenzo are one of the few Roman remains in Milan, are composed of sixteen marble columns with Corinthian capitals which support the entablature, which was of a Roman building dating from the third century AD, perhaps the great baths constructed by Emperor Maximilian.
The columns were transported in the current location in the fourth century to complete the nascent Basilica of San Lorenzo.
