Peter and Paul Window: Nero and Paul

Emperor Nero and St. Paul holding a book. Both look to the next panel, in which St. Peter is baptizing a man in a barrel. Interestingly the two men are dressed the same, except for Nero's belt and boots. Detail of Peter and Paul Window in the ambulatory of Bourges Cathedral, dating from c.1215-25.
