Ionian Capital from Crimea

This Ionian capital is made of limestone and dates from the second quarter of the 5th century BCE. It was found at Kerch, in Crimea, in the acropolis of ancient Panticapaeum. Panticapaeum was referred to as "Taurica" by the ancient Greeks, who settled in the area in the late-7th or early-6th century BCE. (Pushkin Museum, Moscow)
