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. Here they were portraied embracing, in sign of harmony, in a porphyry sculpture dating from the 4th century, produced in Asia Minor, today on a corner of Saint Mark's in Venice, next to the "Porta della Carta".
