The Byzantine sarcophagus depicts the death of the Virgin surrounded by the disciples with the Redeemer in the middle carrying Mary's soul in the form of a child in swaddling bands to heaven.Above the sarcophagus in the lunette of the arch is a fine work by Paolo Veneziano (1339), who was the initiator of that school of painting that was to make the city famous throughout the ages. The picture is St Francis and St Elizabeth of Hungary present the Doge Dandolo and the Dogaressa to the Virgin.
