Right Margin:
Christ: Scene -- Christ, nimbed, raising right hand in gesture of blessing is seated on cushioned bench. He looks toward man, hands extended; above angel, nimbed, descends from arc of heaven holding with right hand crown above head of the man.
Below, six (?) soldiers, holding halberds or spears, and man with draped head, stand behind sarcophagus.
At bottom, six (?) mounted soldiers holding lances, one wearing helmet inscribed with cross, possibly crusader.
