Beautifully reused column among the plainer ones in the cistern.  A similar column is found in the remains of the Triumphal Arch of Theodosius I (AD 379-395) in Istanbul.  The designed is variously described as "lopped branch" or "raised pictures of a Hen's Eye, slanted branches, and tears," or the Club of Hercules.
