Panel 18 - Fragmentary panel (now penniless, the Prodigal is ejected from the inn?)
Description:
Despite severe losses, the surviving elements and comparison with other Prodigal windows are enough to suggest that this is the moment when, all his belongings and wealth gone, the foolish boy is thrown out by the innkeeper with nothing but some old rags. Several pieces of modern blue glass, which are clear enough to show the chicken-wire protecting the outside of the window. Rather incongruously, some unrelated fragment of tituli have been used as stop-gaps in the border.
