The joint between drums in this image passes through the middle of the scene and the fact that the carving passes across it uninterrupted shows that it was completed in place.

Notes

The lefthand Dacian in this detail was designed to hold a metal weapon in his hand but this was never added, a common phenomenon on the Column.
