Stylised acanthus with flowers and snake
A central acanthus calyx is flanked by two different acanthus rosettes. Above the calyx is a stylized palmette. A snake is represented rising in the centre of the palmette. Snakes were common motifs among flowering vegetal ornament of this kind, both at Aphrodisias (for example, in the decorated piers of the Hadrianic Baths) and in Rome (for example, on the Ara Pacis).
