Russian term or phrase: овы
Более архаичный характер придает нимфейской капители и четное число ов, что уже с конца V в. до н. э. не встречается в Малой Азии.
Оформление абака нимфейской капители расписными овами, а не резьбой позволяет говорить уже о влиянии аттического стиля ионийского ордера.
Is it ova (ovum)?
