  • The two columns are located, facing each other, at the entrance to St. Mark's Square, on the side of the San Marco Basin. They were taken from the Byzantine Empire as spoils of war in the 13th century. At the top of the columns are the marble statues of the two patron saints of Venice: St. Mark, depicted by the marching lion, and San Todaro (Teodoro), depicted in the act of killing a dragon. At their bases, of Istria stone, are depicted, in relief, the crafts that once took place in the square: of the 4 statues placed under the column of San Todaro, are still recognizable the crafts of the fishmonger and the blacksmith; while of the 3 statues placed under the column of St. Mark, only the trade of the greengrocer is recognizable.
