Terminal Figures

TERMINAL FIGURES, also called " termini " or " terms," in architecture, figures of which the upper parts only, or perhaps the head and shoulders alone, are carved, the rest running into a parallelepiped, and sometimes into a diminishing pedestal, with feet indicated below, or even without them (see HERMAE).
