Single order, segmental headed with tympanum and roll corbels. This narrow doorway has plain jambs with roll corbels supporting a tympanum, all in the same plane. The monolithic tympanum is segmental and carved with an order of plain fictive voussoirs, indicated by inscribed lines, outside a segment carved with scale ornament. It is supported on a pair of roll corbels, carved on their front faces with fluted sexfoils, and along their bodies with single, nested chevrons, alternately roll and hollow.
