The martyrdom of St Laurence; the naked saint lying on a gridiron, held down with large forks by two henchmen. In front of the grill another two henchmen, one with bellows, the other one putting more coal from a basket onto the pile underneath the grill. A group of onlookers in the left background including a figure with a feather hat, perhaps Hippolytus (?). Underneath, six lines of Latin and German verse each. c.1505-7 Woodcut and letterpress
