The Martyrdom and Translation of St. Timothy

Constantinople, 1025-50
Manuscript illumination: Ink, paint, and gold on parchment.
Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, Maryland

On the left a single man with a cudgel represents the Ephesian mob that attacked St. Timothy with cudgels and stones. In the legend he was the first to bring the gospel to Ephesus, so he is pictured wearing a white "omophorion" embroidered with crosses, which is emblematic of an Orthodox bishop.

Behind the saint and his executioner is Mount Pion, where Timothy finally expired from his wounds and was buried. On the right is the translation of his body to Constantinople.
