These capitals - the Capital with Acanthus and Crosses and the Engaged Capital with Windblown Acanthus - may have been found in Northern Syria and presumably come from a large and important church. Both capitals are decorated with leaves of acanthus, a fleshy plant with jagged leaves native to the Mediterranean area. One capital is symmetrical with crosses in its ornament, the other is asymmetrical and gives the impression of windblown leaves.
