St. Agnes and St. Pudentiana

9th century
Chapel of St. Zeno
Basilica of St. Praxedes, Rome

The two saints are identified by the gray inscriptions (illegible in this photo) placed beside their haloes. As in the great apse mosaic in this church, they carry their martyr's crowns as offerings – in this case a part of a procession to the altar in the St. Zeno chapel. A third figure in the procession, separated from these two by a blind window, is St. Praxedes, St. Pudentiana's sister.
