"The Medusa Head" Basilica Cistern - Yerebatan Saray Tip by MalenaN
Basilica Cistern - Yerebatan Saray, Istanbul: 124 reviews and 266 photos
In the left corner, in the far end, of Basilica Cistern are two columns standing on a Medusa head each. One of the Medusa heads are upside down and the other is lying on its side. Because they are like this they are probably not for decoration but only old stones that have been reused.
Medusa, who according to the Greek mythology could petrify with her looks, is now ?in stone?.
