MS G.55 fol. 117v

A nimbed Anthony Abbot the Great, holding a walking stick in his right hand and a book and bell in his left hand, stands amid flames. A pig stands on its back legs in front of him. The figure is in a windowed room hung with three tapestries. One is inscribed VOS DE CELO AD ANTONIUM FACTA EST QUONIAM VIRILITER DIMICASTI ECCE (HIS) FACIAM TE NI TOTO ORBE NOMINARI ORA PRO NOBIS.
