Description Fragment of thick, cut-out type akroterion with flat surfaces, sides, and rounded edges; has scar across bottom, presumably for attachment to a ridge pole tile (scar length 0.153 m, width 0.047 m). Rough shape of the piece is a thick, broad central shaft which is slanted toward one side; from this shaft extend the remains of three projections--a thinner, outward and downward curving top piece which probably rejoined the shaft near the center of the same side, thus describing an irregular circle, a thicker flat projection on the same side, widening out from the center of the shaft so as to form the presumed bottom of the top circle, and to form a triangle with the shaft and bottom of the akroterion (or ridge pole tile); the third projection is broken off at the shaft, but it is likely that the opposite side of the shaft carried similar projections--from the preserved curved edges on the shaft, however, it is obvious that the opposite side cannot have been a mirror image of the one preserved.

Editorial Note

Open Context editors work with data contributors to annotate datasets to shared vocabularies, ontologies, and other standards using 'Linked Open Data' (LOD) methods.

The annotations presented above approximate some of the meaning in this contributed data record to concepts defined in shared standards. These annotations are provided to help make datasets easier to understand and use with other datasets.
