The Saint Matthew Capital

Not on view

On the left side sits King Eglypus of Ethiopia with his son, resurrected by Matthew. Two malicious sorcerers are engaged by Eglypus’s evil successor King Hyrtacus shown on the front. He seeks to procure the hand of Iphegenia, Eglypus’s daughter, whom Matthew had dedicated to God. On the right side, the devil seizes the soul of the villainous king after he has Matthew executed.
