Corinthian type pilaster, decorated with two rows of acanthus leaves. The leaves of the upper row end in volutes.

Material analyses conducted by Danielle Decrouez (Geneva, Museum of Natural History) and Karl Ramseyer (University of Bern, Institute of Geological Sciences) have shown that the pilaster capital was made of limestone from the area of Brescia. Click here for the detailed results.
