Notes:

A medieval feast! Two people are seated behind a table laden with food; at either side a person (a servant or slave perhaps) kneels and hands food to one of the seated figures. Between the two seated figures (perhaps a king and queen) another person holds a goblet, or perhaps a flask of wine; whether this person is a servant pouring wine or is one of the feasters is unclear to me.

“From MS. Cott. Tib. C. vi. (British Museum), a Psalter, English work of the eleventh century.”
