This picture appears to be a predella panel. On the left, Saint Roch exposes a plague bubo; on the right, Saint Laurence, in a deacon's costume, holds the grill on which he was martyred. Saint Laurence became a patron of those afflicted by burns and by lumbago, and (as a deacon) patron of librarians.
