The complex, yet clearly arranged composition of the mantle that survived from the first century of Hungarian Christianity shows versatility and rich details. More than eighty figures and scenes appear on it, which are depicted grouped in a geometric arrangement. In the above symbolic system of pictures, the figures highlighted by mandorlas (almond-shaped frames of glory) are provided with interpretive inscriptions. The above Latin inscriptions written in Leonine hexameters (rhymed-metrical verse form) are among the earliest relics of Latin literature in Hungary.
