CONDITION In three large pieces and ooe small, the latter being the only surviving fragment of a long sliver that sprang at breakage from between the lower-left fragment and the full-length, right-hand fragment. Mended before re-erection.

MATERIAL A hard, fine-grained limestone.

SHAPE Tapers slightly towards the base, with straight sides; the top may originally have been flat. The base of carving tilts downwards to the left. The front is nearly flat; the back, well dressed; the sides irregularly rounded.
