E respond: The semi-circular E respond capital is carved with a continuous row of spade-shaped leaves enclosing smaller almond-shaped leaves and connected by loops at the bases of their stems. The triangular spaces between the tips of the leaves are filled by concave leaves with rounded tips.
Pier 1: The pier capital is carved with a row of triangles surmounted by two overlapping tiers of slightly concave leaves with round tips. The triangles and the lower tier of leaves have incisions along their edges.
W respond: The W respond capital is carved with a row of approximately lozenge-shaped compartments which can be read as the superposition of two meanders or as the meeting of a lower band of zigzag with an upper band of salient cusping.
