Lyon wrote, 'If before leaving the Temple we pass out of the centre aisle and examine the reverse side of the pillars, of which the front has already been shown, we cannot fail to be still more impressed with the amount of labour that has here been expended. The view shows the reverse side of the same pillar of which No. 411 is the front. Unfortunately the Photograph has been much injured, but enough still remains to show the beauty of the carving.'
