This equestrian statue of emperor Marcus Aurelius is a replica of that one which used to be on Capitols Square (Piazza del Campidoglio) in Rome until 1979. The statue in Tulln is reminiscent of the fact that this place is situated on the site of a former Roman camp named Comagena.
The original of the equestrian statue is now on display in the Capitoline Museums.
