Octagonal limestone relief showing two lions withi a shield between them. Attached to seven of the sides are semi-circles containing half-rosettes. The eighth side (the bottom) shows evidence of a "late Gothic plinth which was evidently a part of its support." (letter from Alvin Detwiler, Janaury 7, 1958.)
