Description Fragment of a "cut-out" akroterion preserving part of a member attached to topmost part of a ridge pole tile (not preserved). Preserved: two flat smooth sides tapering with a curved outline from the base, two flattened smooth edges; one starts out from the tile surface and rises obliquely. By three preserved successive concave curves it forms a wavy outline with a protruding rounded peak at top. At the broken end a small portion of concavely curving edge is preserved. There is a break between this preserved edge and the rounded peak- here the edge might have proceeded with a wavy outline or else, turned upwards to define a rising member. Texture, surface and paint are akin to 19710578.
Fabric Description Murlo terracotta, fired light orange brown on surface, gray at core; dark paint is extensively preserved on all finished surfaces.
