Tomb slab in sandstone, sculpted and inlaid in white and red marble, found during the archeological excavation campaign at the ancient basilica of Santa Reparata (1965-1973) at the level of the fourteenth century floor and belonging to an floor burial.
An inscription runs along the perimeter frame which reports the name of the deceased and the date his death: Ser Baldo Bindi dei Fracassini from Poggibonsi, who died on 13 May 1348. He is depicted in bas-relief in the internal part, as if asleep in a bed, with his eyes closed on a pillow, his hands folded on his lap, dressed in the sober clothes of his time: hat, cape, tunic and sandals. In turn, his figure is included in a Gothic aedicule, adorned with a tympanum with big cats and two spiers, above which there are two coats of arms of the Fracassini family from Poggibonsi. He was evidently a notable from the first half of the fourteenth century and his death corresponds to the time when the Black Death struck Florence.
