Marble pilaster capital from the Pantheon in Rome
From the Pantheon in Rome, Italy AD 118-128
The British Museum
"These marble capitals come from the interior of the Pantheon, one of the most iconic buildings of ancient Rome. They were originally located at the top of shafts of porphyry – a rare and expensive stone – and decorated the upper area of the round Pantheon, beneath the dome. The walls, and the floor beneath, were covered in colourful marbles and other precious stones."
