|Section Number:||Ε 493|
|Title:||Sima and Akroterion Base Fragment|
|Description:||Corner sima, cut in one piece with the extremities of both the horizontal and raking sima. The sinking for the statue plinth has a curved outline. Beside the main sinking are two drilled hole perhaps intended for support of attributes, etc. |
Within the main plinth cutting is another rough-picked rectangular cutting, as for an irregular tenon, sinking to an additional depth of ca. 0.02m., cf. Hesperia 9 (1940) p. 37.
The sima is of cyma reversa profile with at narrow fillet at the top. On the horizontal sima is a trace of a lion's head spout and on the raking sima of a painted palmette.
For other fragments of the same series of raking sima, see A 394 and A 439, for lion's heads, see A 272.
These pieces probably all belong to the rebuilt 5th century building.
Assigned to either the Temple of Ares or the Temple of Hephaistos.
|Context:||From a marble pile at the N.E. corner of the Hellenistic Metroon.|
