The provenance of this attractive pedestal isn't known and is slightly mysterious. The inscriptions presumably relate to the instrument or sculpture that the pedestal originally held aloft. Judging by the shadow it has left behind, it was bronze and had multiple fixing points - perhaps an armillary sphere or an astrolabe of some kind.

It would lend itself beautifully to a replacement sundial plate, armillary sphere, or sculpture.
