Evangelist Matthew, with scalloped nimbus, wearing cap, writing with pen on open book with pseudo-inscription, sits on faldstool. Beside him stands man, with scalloped nimbus (Evangelist symbol), before patterned wall hanging.
Amid foliate ornament in margins are fox-faced hybrid with bat wings; birds; hooded man playing bagpipe; swan with wings extended; and cat, licking its back.
