Inventory Number:   A 1967
Section Number:   Ν 898
Title:   Antefix Fragment
Category:   Architecture Marble
Description:   Broken above, below and to left. Preserves greater part of a relief palmette, flanked by flowers. Much weathered.
From the Temple of Poseidon at Sounion.
Island marble.
The two fragments A 1967(Ν 898) and A 1968 (Ν 899) are from same series as A 202, A 1570, A 1778, A 1894, A 1899 and Α 2225, and seem much more like bits of sima with cutout top than separate antefixes. To same series probably belong spouts A 1894, A 1903 and A 1969 (Ν 900).
(Cf. also Argive Heraeum Second Temple Sima.)
