7b Grisaille panel with medallion of hybrid archer

Set on oak grisaille with many modern insertions is a barbed quatrefoil with a grotesque that combines an animal body with claws, tail and perhaps scales, and the upper part of a man in green tunic. The upper body turns back to the right to fire an arrow from a bow, perhaps at the griffin in 7c. In the lower right border is an inserted fragment of Lombardic inscription that may name William de Greenfield, archbishop of York 1304–1315.
