Cover of Simeon Codex (c.1100)

Early 12th-century ivory panel depicting (top) the presentation of Christ in the temple, with the Virgin Mary handing the Child to St. Simeon, and (bottom) the baptism of Christ by John the Baptist. Both scenes are captioned with Latin inscriptions around the border. This panel decorates the cover of the Simeons-Kodex manuscript, which dates from the 9th century and probably comes from Sinai.
