The Vatican Obelisk. At the center of the piazza stands an Egyptian obelisk of red granite, supported by lions and surmounted by the Chigi arms under a cross, all in bronze, making the combined height 41 meters. The obelisk was originally erected at Heliopolis by an unknown pharaoh of the Fifth dynasty of Egypt (c.2494 BC–2345 BC.) During its history of c. 4400 years, the obelisk has been successfully moved 3 times.
