Saint Parascheve (?)

Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description Only a few letters from the inscription next to this figure are extant, so her name is uncertain. The cross in her hand identifies her as a martyr. Two further pieces in museum belong to the same series as this one and carry images of Saint Nicholas (inv. 48.2086.1) and Saint James (inv. 48.2086.9). The three tiles were most probably part of a church wall frieze of saint portraits alternating with plant ornament.
