St. Mark's Basilica in Venice.

Four Horses of San Marco Basilica

"Long ago, the old statues from Greece and from Rome
had been thrown down or stolen: Castor and Pollox,
Hercules in bronze by Lymachus.
The chariot of Lysippus with its four golden horses
had stood on the Imperial Box* until the fourth crusade,
when the Venetians had taken and placed it in their own
church of St. Mark's."


PAWN IN FRANKINCENSE by Dorothy Dunnett,
G.P. Putna's Sons, First American Edition, NY, 1969, pg. 394
