You are here: CollectionsOnline / Fragment of the base of a column (M582 is another section of the same base: the two fit together exactly).
This fragment and Soane M582 (Vermeule 77) are from the same base; another two fragments Soane S106 (Vermeule 75) and M590 (Vermeule 78) are from the same or matching bases. In this one and M582 (Vermeule 77) the enrichment is the same, but, particularly in this one, a fluted torus leading into the fluted half cavetto is visible as an upper course.
