 p201  Equus Constantini

Article on p201 of

Samuel Ball Platner (as completed and revised by Thomas Ashby):
A Topographical Dictionary of Ancient Rome,
London: Oxford University Press, 1929.

Equus Constantini: an equestrian statue of Constantine in the forum (Not. Reg. VIII; Eins. I.7; 7.8), to which the dedicatory inscription (CIL VI.1141) is thought to belong. It may have stood on a low pedestal that still exists near the eastern end of the forum area. This base stands directly on the travertine pavement and is made of bricks on which blocks of travertine and fragments of marble columns were placed: the construction is wretched even for the time of Constantine (Jord. I.2.187‑9; Mél. 1900, 209‑222; Mitt. 1905, 74‑5; Théd. 167, 220, 266; HC 140; CIL VI.31246; EE III p256).
