Flanking the crucified Christ, the figures of Longinus and the Virgin appear on this fragment of an exquisitely carved ivory panel. Now lost are the figures of Stephaton and Saint John. However, Stephaton’s right foot and the vinegar-soaked sponge on a pole are still visible where the ivory breaks off.
