The tetrarchs (from the Greek words for "Four rules") were the four co-rulers that governed the Roman Empire as long as Diocletian's reform lasted. On a corner of Saint Mark's in Venice, next to the "Porta della Carta", stands a statue where they are portraied embracing, in sign of harmony: it is a porphyry sculpture dating from the 4th century, sculpted in Asia Minor.
