An Egyptian obelisk stands in the middle of Saint Peter Square in Rome. As old as the basilica is, the mighty obelisk is approximately 3,500 years older, and has stood by the Vatican Hill for 2,000 years. The Roman Emperor Caligula transferred this obelisk from the city of Heliopolis to Rome and installed it in the middle of the Vatican Circus in AD 37. This new sports arena was built on the side of the Vatican Hill outside the city of Rome.
