Column of Marcus Aurelius: St Paul
A bronze statue of St Paul, the work of Leonardo Sormani and Tommaso della Porta, crowns the ancient Column of Marcus Aurelius.
The statue was created at the behest of Pope Sixtus V (r. 1585-90); the original statue of Marcus Aurelius having disappeared centuries earlier.
