|Object Type (notes)||Ridge Pole Tile Fragment with Attached Cut-Out Akroterion Fragment*|
|Condition||Glued from four pieces. Tile broken on all sides. Akroterion partly broken at base. Wide rising member broken across top. Chipped.|
|Description||Fragment of topmost part of a ridge pole tile with base fragment of an attached "cut-out" akroterion preserving lowest part of a rising curved member, and, at its base towards one side and connected with it, a small beak-like projection rising from the tile. The akroterion has two flat smooth sides tapering upwards with a slight concave curve from the base. Two flat smooth edges preserved, one forms the convex outer edge (lowest part not preserved) of the wide rising member, the other starts out from the tile surface and by one convex and one concave arc confines the small beak-like member and continues to form the inner concave edge of the wide member. The wider, rising member and the beak-like projection curve in confronting directions. The top break preserves a smooth concave area with preserved dimensions 0.057 m x 0.004-0.010 m x about 0.002 m (depth), close to one of the sides and parallel to it.|
|Fabric Description||Murlo terracotta fired reddish brown on surface and gray at core. Red slip preserved on both tile and akroterion (all finished surfaces).|
