Floor burial tombstone in sandstone, found between 1967 and 1968 during excavations at the ancient basilica of Santa Reparata, at the level of the early medieval flooring.
The tombstone is rectangular in shape and has an inscription engraved in the perimeter in Latin and Gothic characters which conveys the identity of the deceased and the date of his death: Lando di Giano da Montevettolini, priest, rector of the church of San Silvestro a Barberino and canon of Santa Reparata, died on 22 August 1353.
The religious man is depicted in bas-relief: his body lying in a cataletto, framed by an aedicule with a Gothic arch and pinnacles, dressed in a cope adorned with an embroidered cross; his head, resting on a pillow and slightly turned on one side, is marked by tonsure and we see the face characterized by a certain naturalism, of a man of about forty years old, with his eyes closed and a contracted expression.
