The Mother of God standing, wearing a chiton and maphorion, and holding Christ, who is framed by an oval mandorla, before her. A cross potent at left and right.
Four emperors standing. Each wears a crown with a cross and a chlamys, and holds a globus cruciger in his right hand.

On the ends are two smaller figures, both beardless: Herakleios at left and Tiberios at right. Constans wears his hair long at the sides and curled, and his sidelocks are combed downward and outward.
