The monument is supposed to be at the National Preserve of Tauric Chersonesos (Inv. no. 34905), but I could not locate it there. Information about its findspot is taken from the inventory log of the National Preserve of Tauric Chersonesos (Archive of the National Preserve of Tauric Chersonesos D. 35. № 284). An estampage was taken (№ 284, according to Latyshev 1907), but once again I was not able to find it.
Judging by the size, it is a cornice of a templon or of another votive object.
