Agora Object: A 3012
Inventory Number:   A 3012
Section Number:   Ι 1681
Title:   Tympanum Block
Category:   Architecture Misc.
Description:   a) In top, cuttings at end for doubel T-clamps from original use and one near middle of front for a Π-clamp from some reuse. Narrow anathyrosis. On front, traces of fine white stucco. In back, at height of ca. 0.65m. are two deep small cuttings.
b) In top, at middle of upper end, trace of a clamp cutting; on front, thin white stucco.
There can be no doubt in view of the correspondence in material and workmanship that the two blocks come from the same building. But the difference in thickness and the lack of correspondence in height suggests that they come from opposite ends.
Sandstone, brown and granular.
Notes:   Found at Q/2-15/9 (Fall 2016).
Context:   From south wall of Late Roman Fortification, at S.W. corner of Library of Pantainos.
