    Side : left

  • Marble capital carved on each side with a caryatid-like female figure between the foreparts of winged bulls (part of one the bull's head is now missing, along with most of the caryatid on one side); the bulls' heads incline downwards, the curls on the head and face indicated with additional chiselling; the surviving caryatid is female in the upper part, wearing a tunic (chiton) belted at the waist; below this the body turns into a spray of acanthus leaves and tendrils; on her head is a tall polos-style headdress (upper part broken away along with much of the face) which supports the plinth on top of the capital; her arms are held in the air to the level of the plinth.
