Like the S face, this has a standing figure above a symmetrical foliage pattern; above the head is more symmetrical foliage perhaps arranged in the quarters of a cross. The foliage is a common type, fluted clusters of leaves often graded in length with the smallest one curled round. The head appears to be tonsured and to be wearing a hood or cowl which loosely encircles the face. The torso and arms are worn and broken, while details of the body below the break are entirely worn away.
