The frame of the classical period and the two Medieval crutch capitals with acephalic eagles, as shelf, constituted the central portal’s lintel of the Cathedral of Saint Andrew, built during the episcopate of Dionysius (1174-1202). Inside the frame, the ancient Byzantine bronze door (1057), once placed at the entrance of the old cathedral, that is the present basilica of the Crucifix was inserted.
In the course of the work of the late 19th century, realized after the collapse of the facade and part of the atrium of the Cathedral, the pieces here were replaced with imitation products.
