Category:   Architecture Marble
Description:   Fragment from lower outer end of a slab preserving some to the anathyrosis for the joint with the double column.

From Stoa of Attalos.
Pentelic marble.
Cf. A 1620 (ΣΑ 1032) - A1632 (ΣΑ 1044). Cf. also A 1660 (ΣΑ 1245).
Context:   Stoa area. Fragments A 1619-A 1632 (ΣΑ 1031-ΣΑ 1044): "Fragments from parapet between upper front columns of Stoa of Attalos. Found in the area of the Stoa. Most of the fragments retain "Valerian Wall" mortar. Better preserved pieces of the parapet are reported to have been found in the earlier excavations of the Greek Archaeological Society and to have been sent to the Varvakeion. These should be in the National Museum, but a hasty search has failed to bring them to light."
Handling:   Not returned to south wall of upper colonnade but placed on open shelves in view in the basement near the work sink. New location marked on catalogue card.
