Square of decoration woven with dark brown wool on light neutral wool. The design consists of a rectangular central panel enclosing three standing human figures. The central panel is surrounded by motifs of fish, birds, plants, running animals and an unidentifiable motif that resembles the Chi-Rho (?), or it may represent an angel (?). The right, the upper and the left ends of the fragment show remains of red wool.
