Fragment of limestone column-necking decorated with lotus moulding.  This fragment shows the upper part of a lotus flower and bud which touch on the moulding. The moulding's top continues into the horizontal plane of the beading which was similarly coloured in red. According to mathematical considerations the estimated upper diameter should span approximately 40 to 45 cm.
