Sarcophagus with five shell-shaped niches with the scene of the "Traditio Legis". At the center is depicted Christ giving the scroll to Saint Paul. Three apostles are depicted in the side niches. In the acroteria of the lid are carved the coats of arms of the Bensai and Del Corno family, who reused the sarcophagus in the seventeenth century.
