3.8.1 But I want to turn my attention again to the godly zeal of her son, the Christ-bearing Emperor Constantine. His zeal for the saving cross of Christ so much surpassed that of his father and mother that he concealed the token of the saving cross on which the Lord Christ suffered according to the flesh, which his mother had brought to him, in a statue of himself on the great porphyry column in the so-called market, that is, the Forum of Constantine. He did this because he believed that the city which bore his name would always be kept safe if that token should be preserved in it.
