This rectangular panel, is situated at the east end of the central nave, adjacent the 'zodiac' panel. The panel is divided to two asymmetric sections. The lower panel seems to depict Daniel in the lions den. The upper panel - a nartive scene. In the lower panel a palm is depicted situated to the left. Left of the palm a lions tail can be seen. Above the hand and the tail part of an hebrew inscription the inscriptions read as follows:## אל## El perhaps the end of the hebrew name : Daniel The upper panel, depicts a flourishing bush on the left end situated above small hills. Flanking the bush from the right a depiction of what seems to be, the upper part of an animal. The panel is framed by parallel lines. A short black line situated below the depction of 'Daniel in the lions den' implies that another panel was probably depicted bellow the latter.
