Top, bottom, back and sides are finished surfaces; but probably not original, unless perhaps the back. Top and bottom were cut back at an acute angle to the face when the stone was used as a capital. It also served at some time as a threshold block, as two round cuttings in the inscribed face indicate.
Law concerning mysteries procession.
About fourty-one lines of the inscription preserved.
Pentelic marble.
Context:   Found in the church of Christ, north of the Eleusinion. Used upside down as an interior column foundation.
