St John Chrysostom.

In Alexandriam intrat S: (Sanctus) Athanasius (St  Athanasius enters Alexandria)

The return of St Athanasius to Alexandria from exile. He is shown wearing Eastern Orthodox vestments, riding on a donkey and carrying a bible. The scene has an astonishing resemblance to the traditional depiction of the entry of Christ into Jerusalem, even to the palms in the background and the cloaks on the ground under the donkey’s feet.
