In the compartments of this retablo can be seen various money-bags. We know the contents of the one that is associated with the Arma Christi: that is, the “30 pieces of silver” (Roman denarii? Tyrian tetradrachmai?) given to Judas Iscariot as the price for his treachery. On the other hand, of the rest of the money-bags that hang from the belts of some of the personajes represented, we know nothing.
