Description

The misericords in Exeter Cathedral are thought to be the oldest complete set in Britain, dating from the mid-13th century. However this misericord, on the north side, has been dated to the 15th century. It depicts a crowned man wearing a jerkin with square buttons, and with a dagger in his belt, sitting on the floor. His raised right hand supports the seat or shelf. The misericord is supported on either side by leaves.
