Part of a Corinthian capital. The piece consists of one angle with a pair of volutes and a rectangular projection on each side. Acanthus covers the whole of each rectangular projection and reaches up to the volutes, which are separated by a plain roll. The moulded abacus is further relieved by a fillet. Running along the bottom are remains of a lower band of acanthus.
