My observations are based on the drawings and photographs published in Koenigs . 1 in Koenigs’ list of volute acroteria. Because of this unusual context, its requirements seem to have differed from those of the other Milesian acroteria which may explain its shape. Its design is in fact closer to the second type of upward spiraling volute acroteria that will be discussed below. , the two late Archaic volutes from Miletos (nos. 4a and 4b in Koenigs). 74 35 These examples will be studied in more detail below after a look at the origins of this class of altar acroteria.
2 on page 51. 44 On the use of color to accentuate select details of the altar decoration see below. 45 Because of their upward movement on either end of the table, they have also been termed altar horns. 29 between the table slabs and corner volutes indicate a pre-established plan for the altar top decoration. 46 The design of the table decoration is the element that lends the altar its distinct character and at the same time helps to situate it stylistically; it therefore deserves closer scrutiny.
Although in the early types from Kyzikos the volutes themselves are not fully separated from the altar table, the volute would probably have extended beyond the edge of the base to enlarge the visual sense of the altar space to either side. 79 Like the examples from Miletos, it is designed as a corner piece with two volutes meeting at a 90 degree angle and palmettes outlining the corner. Its canalis, however, does not continue along the altar front but terminates in a downward curve. Like the examples from Northern Ionia, the volute of the Myus acroterion is raised from the table surface and describes an upward movement.
