Gift of Gaetana Enders, in loving memory of Thomas O. Enders, 2002
The white marble block is part of the entablature of a monumental building, cut down on its left side and possibly re-used as a step or threshold at a later time. The front has a carved molding; the decorative elements comprise (from top to bottom) a guilloche pattern, Lesbian kymation, and a bead-and-reel ornament.
