Caption
Known as the "Reliquary of Pepin," this beautiful golden casket actually dates from about the year 1000. However, pieces of an earlier crucifixion scene were found inside, which may date to Pepin's time (817-38). One side of the reliquary depicts a Crucifixion scene in gold, while the other has two doves.
