Quadrant of a lower Corinthian capital element. The curved face has two acanthus bands with, on the lower band of smaller leaves, a surviving pair tied by the stalks. The leaves each have a drooping lobe; many points are now lost, others meet the points on adjacent leaves. Between the leaves of the lower band are vertical ribs.
