These figures made each from two pieces of Bath stone, were carved in the studio
of George Lawson and in 1887 and represent Roman emperors generals involved with
Britain. The environment of the Roman Baths is very damp and these figures on the
balustrade of the Great Baths terrace are prone to a great throughput of moisture.
This drying and wetting process has been exacerbated by the hard cement joint between
the two stones causing increased exfoliation in this part of the figure. The partners
of the newly formed Nimbus Conservation Group carried out the conservation work on
these figures using the lime techniques they had learned under Professor Baker on
the west front of Wells Cathedral
