Part of a Corinthian capital. A central rectangular projection is entirely covered by an acanthus leaf with a central drooping lobe above a rib; indistinct leaves appear in the re-entrants with indistinct edges of inner volutes, and another leaf rises towards the right under the usual edge to an outer volute. The abacus has clumsily carved mouldings.
