Notes

Panel 2 is much more tightly composed than Panel 1. Lorenzo Maetani said to be responsible for the carving but the differences in the scenes suggest more than one sculptor. Those figures higher up and in the centre of the panel have had the lower parts of their bodies left unfinished to help line them up better. The sizes of the blocks that constitute this panel can be seen on PR500_05_14 and the toolmarks are documented on PR500_06_02.
