Description
Image at bottom depicts a barefoot man with long hair, wearing a long robe and collar. A tag affixed to the left shoulder of his garment reads: "Degraded." He twists his body as if to strike with a scroll labelled: "A petition for place or pension" that he holds in his clasped hands. A sign on the wall reads: "The way to court," and features a hand pointing to the right.
