On the soffit of the west arch of the narthex, two angels unfold the Scroll of Heaven. The Scroll is embellished with golden stars and two medallions containing two heads, the personified Moon and Sun. The accompanying inscription reads: the angels are rolling up the scroll of heaven, and the source of inspiration comes mainly from the book of Apocalypse, Isaiah and an extract of a homily on the Second Coming. Counterparts of the representation are attested at the same exact position in the church of Saint Nicolas of the Roof.
