The column of Phocas is a column that refers to the Byzantine emperor Phocas (r. 602-610 CE), but it was in fact a column erected in the forum piazza to correspond with the late honorary columns, so it probably dates to the reign of Diocletian (r. 284-305 CE) Constantine (r.306-337 CE). The structure is oriented to greet the people walking down the Argiletum approach into the forum.
