|Inventory Number:||A 41|
|Title:||Fragments of Kithara of Apollo Patroos|
The larger fragment, c), is broken at both ends, as is the scroll underneath. Part of the finished top is preserved. It is flattened and well dressed at the back. The front has a raised bevel molding which tapers from left to right. The upper surface consists also of a tapering band, flat. Below the bevel is attached a bit of a scroll, with a deeply carved groove, on both sides. The under surface of the scroll slopes from the edge of the groove to a central rib.
Two other fragments, a) and b), are part of this scroll. Each of them shows, on the outer surface, a small triangular projection, broken at the end.
Two more fragments, d) and e), also belong.
Interpreted as a Kithara of Apollo Patroos S 2154.
