Plaque with Two Saints


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 300

The two saints stand holding books and supporting between them a large cross. The youthful figure at the left and the bearded one at the right closely resemble early depictions of the evangelists John and Matthew. The plaque may have been a cover for a religious text.
