As (i), but the dragon's tongue projects further from the mouth and forms a complete loop rather than an open spiral at its tip. Both jaws are unbroken. The chamfered block at the top of the SW nave buttress is similarly carved with foliage, but the main face design consists of two scrolling stems that intersect without clasps. The lower stems are clasped across the chamfer to a single scrolling stem on the chamfered lower face. All stems are triple-reeded. Alongside the dragon's head on the W face of the buttress, the block is carved into a panel containing a quadruped walking right. Its tail passes between its buttocks and up over its body and terminating in a large lily above its hindquarters, and it opens its mouth to roar. It has no obvious mane but otherwise appears like a lion.
