Relation specification
Additional remarks The identification of the commemorated person as a priest is based on one of the heraldic shields, which bears the image of a chalice flanked by two ampullae. Unknown whether the slab also commemorated other person(s): the inscription is illegible and the presence of a chalice does not necessarily mean that only a priest was commemorated.
