The first two panels on the left hand side wall are by Circignani again. The first panel shows: The Emperors Heraclius and Chosroes Fight Over the Cross. The Sassanid Persian emperor Chosroes II had conquered and sacked Jerusalem in 614, and taken the True Cross as war booty. Heraclius managed to defeat him.
