The circular form adopted and followed for this type of monument makes knowledge of it invaluable. The division into several floors was supported by superb columns, adorned with statues, busts, bas-reliefs, bronzes, etc. There are in the basilica of Saint Paul, outside the walls, twenty-four magnificent marble columns, said Pavonazetto, and in one piece, taken by Constantine from the mausoleum of Adrian. Some authors claim that these same columns once adorned the temple of Minerva in Athens.
