Christ: Entry into Jerusalem -- Within city gate one man removes tunic while second man places tunic on ground; scroll inscribed BENEDICTUS QUI VENIT IN NOMINE DOMINI. In balcony of gate, man gathers palms from tree in which second man, standing on limb, does same. Approaching gate, Christ, crossed nimbus, rides ass, holding book in left hand and blessing with right hand; scroll beside him inscribed SI COGNOUSTES ET TU(?). Apostle Peter, scalloped nimbus, holds keys in right hand, and two other Apostles, nimbed, stand behind Christ.
