west wall of north aisle

Inscription: Ad Majoram Dei Gloriam.

The story of Tobit and the Angel appears in the apocryphal Book of Tobit. Both it, and the story of the Flight into Egypt, concern persecution and exile. Tobit as a 'man of sorrows' and a 'servant of the Lord' (Isaiah 53:3) is a 'type' of Jesus, prefiguring the Passion.
