The Colossus of Barletta

Impressive statue in the city of Barletta in Italy.

From Wikipedia: 

The statue reportedly washed up on a shore, after a Venetian ship sank returning from the sack of Constantinople in the Fourth Crusade in 1204, but it is not impossible that the statue was sent to the West much earlier. The identity of the Emperor is uncertain.

Imagine finding such a statue while walking on some shore.

I'll bet it's Constitine. He liked those big statues of himself.
