Inventory Number:   A 1968
Section Number:   Ν 899
Title:   Antefix Fragment
Category:   Architecture Marble
Description:   Broken above, below and to right. Preserves greater part of palmette, with flower to left and tendrils below. Carefully worked in low relief. Severely 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.)
