One of the series A 3008 - A 3011 and A 2987 and A 2988. With this shaft is to be associated the capital A 2987.
White, strongly laminated marble.
Apparently from the late 5th c. B.C., but reused in the Roman period before being employed in the Late Roman Fortification Wall. At the time of this earlier reuse, the fluting seems to have been cut for the first time and many of the contact surfaces were roughly worked.

Context:   Late Roman Fortification, at S.W. corner of Library of Pantainos. Cf. A 3008.
