Lot Essay

The column is surmounted by a capital composed of Ionic scrolls, which emerge from an acanthus calyx, topped by an abacus decorated with rosettes. It is likely that this object functioned as a furniture attachment or a support. Cf. Accession no. 00.13.16 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York for a similar-sized column.
