Good colonia 2004-03-25 5:50

Nice monument. Where is Catharina II mentioned on the inscription?
:-) not the horse, eh :-)
Would suggest to crop the pic in order to strengthen the diagonal and to skip Catharina΄s name.

Default To colonia: Where is Catharina II mentioned on the inscript

I have not understood your question. What means where?! If to you so it will be more convenient, figure II can be put and Roman (2)

I was joking! It is just curious that Catharina΄s name appears on the inscription, though the monument itself shows only Petr΄s figure.

And what strange? :) On a monument it is written, that it is put to Petr I by Ekaterina

OK, I can read on the foto 2 names and a roman number indicating a year. Nothing about that Catharina put it, anybody else could have done this.
It remains totally unclear why Catharina is mentioned on the inscription.
So I made my own interpretation ... with a sense of humour.
Hope you are not insulted ;-)

On your picture from the other side I now can see an additional tiny word in front of the roman number indicating that C. has "put" this monument. Thanks.

Probably I too badly know English language, and it is difficult for me to see nuances. Naturally it is not offended
