A saint dressed as a deacon, and holding in his hands a book, a stick, with a loop on each side, [inscription] in a niche with a round arch is couched with white, blue, brown, yellow and green silk, black and red wool and silver thread, made by winding linen thread with silvered-gold beaters’ skin. The gold thread made with metal was probably added later. The figure of the saint is applied.
