Funerary Inscription of Pope Benedict VII

The funerary inscription of Pope Benedict VII (974-983), embedded into the wall of the nave near the entrance. It's a metric inscription in seventeen verses and mentions that a house had to be built next to the church to house the Canons, since the church was so full of relics.
