Two Medusa heads sit at the bases of two columns in the Basilica Cistern. They are located in the northwest corner of the Cistern. No one knows from where they were removed and brought to the Cistern. Some believe the heads were brought to the Cistern after being removed from a building of the late Roman period. One of the Medusa heads is sideways and the other is upside down.
