Agora Object: A 138
Inventory Number:   A 138
Section Number:   Ζ 30
Title:   Step Block
Category:   Architecture Marble
Description:   Corner block. The face is picked, and shows no drafting at foot of step. The working of the anathyrosis band is not very smooth, but rather picked. At edge of joint is a smooth worked surface, not sunk below but quite distinctly visible.
A clamp was once intended at the top and never cut, but apparently the step above the set further back than called for by the original plan.
Blue Hymettian marble.
A 138 (Ζ 30) - A 144 (Ζ 36) are from the same series.
