Inscription.  

This cornice was part of the roofing system (entablature) of a monumental building. It was adorned on both sides with geometric and floral motifs using the Corinthian order, the prevailing architectural-artistic style in Asia Minor in the second-fourth centuries CE. The cornice was adorned with a dedicatory inscription, most probably to a woman named Cleopatra, who together with her son or daughter, was a member of a local aristocratic family that dedicated the building to the colony of Caesarea.

Marble – The Late Roman period (2nd – 3rd centuries CE)
