Read now on TripAdvisor what the column is about. Almost did not notice it, and it's actually a pretty cool thing. Could use an information plaque.

Found in one corner at the far end of Piazza Mercantile. The age of the column and lion are evident from the worn surfaces. People seem to climb on the lion's back to take selfies and generally fool around. Had to wait for a while to get a photo of the debtor's column which is up a couple of steps.

Dating back to 16th century, this historical artifact depicts where insolvent debtors used to be punishment. One of the many wonders of Bari

Dating back to 16th century, this column - accompanied by a figure of a lion - was a place where insolvent debtors used to be exposed for punishment by public humiliation.
