Title:   Column Shaft
Category:   Inscriptions
Description:   Inscribed column shaft.
Largely complete though very battered and worn. Several large cuttings from later use as a millstone.
Top drum of the shaft of a large fluted column (Ionic?). The flutes stop well below the top which is somewhat larger in diameter, apparently to receive a dedication. Three indistinct triangular areas-leaves (?)- curl down over the edge, suggesting the placement of the three legs of a tripod. The inscription runs horizontally across the flutes, two letters in each flute.
Context:   Found in cellar of Poikile Street no. 3, during demolition.
