One of two Medusa head pillars in the Basilica cistern (the other head is laying on it's side).  The heads were recently uncovered and are believed to have been placed in the cistern to ward off evil spirits from the water supply.  Sultanahmet, Istanbul.

The Portuguese Cistern in El Jadida, Morocco. Built in 1514, this former warehouse (possibly an armory) was converted into a cistern in the 16th century. The underground chamber, measuring 34 meters by 34 meters, was constructed with five rows of five stone pillars.
