(210) A poros slab from a bench, with anathyrosis
and remains of iron, was found in tomb I at Lefkadia, but not in situ.
Going further: brilliant ancient techniques for putting column-drums together (anathyrosis
, empolion) produce, on the upper surface of the column-drum, concentric circles around a precisely determined center, which is suggestive, no doubt, of more than one ancient vision--in particular, for Hahn, Anaximander's (p.
This is a fairly standard height for a stylobate block; the anathyrosis
is preserved on the left side.
The other detail that supports a late date for the capital is the anathyrosis carved on one side of the abacus (Fig.
(9.) That the anathyrosis does not pertain to a later reuse of the column capital is evident from the fact that the anathyrosis margins at each side of the abacus have very different widths.
The northernmost preserves anathyrosis
on its north face, as can be seen in a photograph published by Pfaff, (43) although it lies just 0.30 m from the foundation cutting for the northern interior colonnade of the western chamber.
The top, rear, and left sides are rough-picked, with anathyrosis along the front edge of the left side (the original anathyrosis and rough picking on the left side were smoothed to create a level surface on the entire left side).
Sliver of white marble from top front of a block, preserved only above, where it shows anathyrosis covering the entire preserved surface.
