Hippodrome, Sultanahmet, Istanbul

Chariot races and other sporting events were held in the hippodrome. There was an oblong track with a divider down the middle, called a spina. The spina had three monuments mounted on it which still survive today, including the walled obelisk, the obelisk of Theodosius I, and the serpentine column.
