The sepulchral plate belongs to De Dote family, as it has attested by the two emblems into the superior string, having three stars in head and three bar on the point, and by the inscription that runs along the perimeter, unfortunately mutilated in the inferior side. The dead figure is hosted inside a Late-Gothic aedicula with pinnacled steeples, ogival arches and single and double lancet windows. He allegedly was Vitiello De Dote, notary of Amalfi, dead in 1462, represented inside a proto-Renaissance shell-shaped niche, standing with joined hands and opened eyes.
