Category:   Architecture Marble
Description:   Top made in separate piece, for which dowel cutting (?) exists in flat top of this part. Sides have fairly rough claw chisel finish. Bottom surface rough-picked.
Possibly top not originally made separately; hole seems more like remains of lifting hole left when top sliced off later. But later workings around cutting indicate that it may once have contained metal.
Bluish marble.
Context:   Removal of wall of Roman Building (west wall of Room I).
