Left to right: Pope
Paschal I, St. Agatha, St. Paul, Christ, St. Peter, Cecilia's husband
Valerian, and St. Cecilia.
Paschal I's halo is
square to indicate that he was alive at the time the mosaic was
created. He holds a model of a church to indicate his sponsorship
of the reconstruction of Santa Cecilia.
On her head St.
the crown of martyrdom. Valerian
and St. Cecilia carry theirs on their left arms.
In this 9th century
image the keys have emerged as St. Peter's attribute, but St. Paul does
not have the sword that we see in most of his later portraits.
See details of the
figures on the left and the right.
