Alongside the column the parapet ends in an anta with neatly profiled capital and it is capped by an epistyle and cornice with dentils. The outer face is carved in a reticulated pattern and is heavily weathered.
Conceivably from between the free standing round columns in the south end of the Odeion.
Pentelic marble.
