Book of Hours of Louis of Orleans

f. 37r, Eglon receives Ehud's tribute or Ezechias pays tribute to Sennacherib


Back

This illustration shows a crowned king holding up his sword, dressed in gold armour and blue fabrics – possibly one of Sennacherib’s ministers or Ehud himself, since he has no crown –handing a bag of money over to a soldier. Behind are many soldiers, only three of whom stand out, and spears.
Artistic representations of the tributes to Eglon or Sennacherib are very scarce. Exegetes consider the presentation of the tribute to the latter to represent the saints complying with God’s mandates and precepts.
