Yep!

You can actually see the base of the obelisks and part of the Spina too (the terrain around the obelisks are excavated so that you can see the original floor height, since ground level has risen significantly since 330 AD)

This is how the hippodrome and the great palace looked like from the Marmara sea at that time
