Rochus of Montpellier: Scene, Displaying Leg Wound — Standing below a half-dome with a shell, Rochus of Montpellier, wearing a hat, raising both arms, and holding a walking stick under his right arm, displays a wound in his leg. An angel touches it with the left forefinger. The monogram S is in the upper right corner of the miniature.
The miniature rests on a bracket decorated with two fantastic animals. The margins are decorated with floreate ornament. A monogram of the initials A and P linked by a love knot is in the lower margin. Text, Suffrage.
