The dataset originated in a study of the early development of the Ionic capital, which was particularly concerned with the relationship between the elongate Cycladic form and the more symmetrical and eventually dominant Ionian. In the course of the study a number of exemplars were surveyed by laser scanning, and reconstructed digitally using a parametric surface modeller. Both the surveyed and the reconstructed forms were prepared in formats suitable for 3D reproduction by rapid prototyping. This exemplar represents a corner capital from the Delos Museum.
