The Saint Disputing with the Emporer.

Maximinus is seated cross-legged on the left, a drawn sword in his right hand, his left being raised as though in emphasis; the Saint, facing him, raises her right hand; behind her stands an attendant, clad in shoulder-cape, a red knee-length cote-hardie with the lower edge dagged, and shoes with long points.
