  • Ionic capital

This is one of a number of Ionic capitals imported to Portus in late Imperial times, together with their bases and at a semi-finished stage. It is, therefore, a typical late-Ancient product of the Proconnesus quarries destined for exportation and finished by local workshops in its place of erection.
