Initial C with Christ as the Man of Sorrows
This cutting can be dated to before 1363.
This initial begins the Introit for the feast of Corpus Christi, "Cibauit eos ex adipe frumenti ..." (Full ears of wheat are the nourishment he gives them). It was illuminated by the Sienese painter and illuminator Niccolò di Ser Sozzo, who was active from ca. 1348, when he first appears in documents, to his death in 1363.
