Apse of the Euphrasian Basilica, Poreč, Croatia

Like the other female saints in the margin of the vault, Agnes is pictured frontally and has a halo of concentric colors. Each of the saints wears a white veil, a single-stranded necklace of dark beads, and a simple dalmatic, gold in color, with an embroidered collar.
