The corner of hell on the tympanum of Conques

This corner of hell displays several tortures deemed appropriate for the sin committed. A newly arrived king, pushed into the furnace, points hopelessly to the back and seems to be saying "It wasn't me..." Some monks are captured like fish in a net, a false money changer is given a drink of molten metal.
