Notes:   Note on inventory card, 6 June 1955: "Many Stoa of Attalos fragments have been joined or put together with plaster without any full record made. When the parapet fragments and the double Ionic fragments were moved out of the mending room in June 1955, J. T. thought that this was not the time for new photographs, etc. but we would have to wait for the published description to straighten out the numbers, L. T."
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."
