Italian term or phrase: alla latina
Il Pantocratore, dipinto a mezzo busto occupa tutta l’ampiezza della lunetta che sovrastava probabilmente un altare (distrutto). Egli, con il braccio destro allargato benedice alla latina, ma nella sinistra regge il Vangelo aperto, nel quale è iscritto, invece, un testo greco.
