Plaque: Palmette in pavement

Site: Palmette in pavement (1 memorial)

WC1, Euston Road, St Pancras New Church

The palmette is a common decorative motif used in Greek, and in this instance Greek revival, architecture. It can also be seen along the roof line of the church.

This stone, decorated with palmette and arrow, is laid in the pavement in front of the caryatids (women pretending to be pillars) on the north elevation of the 1820 Greek revival church.

We guess that, prior to realignment during pavement works, the arrow used to point to the church, but why is it here? See Egyptian eye in pavement for another piece of this puzzle.
