Description:   The first, second, third and sixth drums from the top survive and may be recognized from the letters ΑΑΑΑ, etc. The sixth was here the bottom drum.
One of the series A 3008 - A 3011 and A 2987 and A 2988.
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.
Notes:   Found at R/16-15/14 (Fall 2016).
Context:   Late Roman Fortification, at S.W. corner of Library of Pantainos. Cf. A 3008.
