The ‘Phocas Pillar’ 4: 1981

A more-or-less contemporary view of the column was taken by Revel Coles and is kept with the Project’s holdings. The eroded remains of the honorific inscription for the emperor Phocas may just be discerned near the top.

This exhibit includes a view of Bahnasa from the north-west which shows the remains of the column today.
