Fig. 4

Left panel: Analysis points investigated through Raman microscopy (highlighted as black circles over the colour picture of the sample). Right panel: Raman spectra of sample L5. Layer 1 shows the presence of Lead Chromate (354(s), 375(m), 397(w), 839(vs) cm−1) and Phthalocyanine Blue (256(m), 679(s), 746(s) cm−1) (see also Additional file 1). Layer 2 shows the Cinnabar peak at 250 cm−1. Layer 3 presents a peak at 548 cm−1, associated to Ultramarine Blue pigment
