The Mining Code by Despot Stefan Lazarević was preserved as a transcript in a book dated back to 16th century,
written on paper column. The front page portrays citizens sitting on wide benches in four rows. judging by their rich costume and tall caps, usually worn by nobles of 14th century, and canes they were leaning on, it seemed they were respectable mine owners. Such portraits of citizens are extremely rare in the history of Serbian art, which adds value to this Code with the illustration,
as an interesting document of times gone by.
