A white marble Corinthian capital with a carving of a woman with a child, kept in the library/museum of the city of Ereğli (inv. no. 32). The capital's cross section is square, W. 0.26 m. There are inscribed labels (letter height 0.02 m) to the right and to the left of the head of the depicted woman. Based on these labels Walter Ameling rightly identified the mother and child as the Virgin Mary and Jesus.
