Architectural elements

Piece of marble showing the remains of carved molding (?) in the form of groups of three raised narrow ridges spaced with gently sloping depressions. There are two groups preserved: one with ridges of even width and shape, one where the center ridge, what is preserved, shows a narrowing to a point at one end between the side ridges, which angle in to follow the narrowing. The center ridge widens as it goes away from the point.
