Description
Channels are cut around the arms and heads of the two uppermost Dacians, as well as along the lower edge of the spiral border, to define them against the flat background.

Notes

Both of these Dacians were originally intended to have metal inserts in their hands but never received them. This is a common phenomenon on the Column.
