Curatorial note

A large fragment, consisting of the terminal volute of a single acanthus scroll from a scrollwork panel. The work is very close in design and arrangement of foliate pattern to the famous lower outside relief panels of the Ara Pacis (Rome), but the heavier undercutting and the drilled bud indicate the later, Flavian, date.
