The main street of Perge, the cardo, was flanked on both sides by hundreds of columns. On this one, a toga-clad male, pouring out a libation, stands out in high relief.

The north–south Cardo, along which this column stands, was close to 985 ft. [300 m.] long — stretching from the nymphaeum in the north to the Hellenistic City Gate on the south side of the city.
