After their deaths, Aimo and Vermondo continued to perform miracles, many of which related to healing. No longer living men, they appear here as half-length figures in the sky. The miniature shows three different moments in the story. First, a cart runs over a little girl and the man tending the oxen looks back toward the tragic event. The mother, shown behind the cart, then prays to the two saints. Finally, Aimo and Vermondo appear above and raise their hands in answer to the mother's prayer.
