Kaled Kaled

Statue: Kaled

Inscription

{On the base, just under the foot:}
Kaled
{The sandstone base used to carry a quotation from Byron's poem Lara but this is gone.}

Sculpted in 1872-3. Stone, painted white. About 1.4m high. This statue represents Kaled, a character from Byron's narrative poem, Lara. Kaled is a woman, disguised as a page.

Site: Kaled (1 memorial)

EC4, Fleet Street, 193

Building erected in 1883 by George Attenborough for his jewellery and pawn-broking business, Attenborough and Sons. Architects: Archer and Green. The pawnbrokers' motto "Sub hoc [signo] floresco", "under this sign I flourish", is inscribed immediately below the paws of the two winged lions on the second floor, and we can guess that the sign, the 3 gold balls would have hung from the ornate post between the lions. But "signo" has been omitted from the motto here.
