Bernardo Daddi, Saint Reparata Before the Emperor Decius

First half of 14th century
Tempera on wood
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 43.98.3, Bequest of Maitland F. Griggs

The label at the museum calls the man on the throne "the Emperor Decius," but St. Reparata's Passio calls him Praeses Decius thirteen times. A praeses is a provincial governor.
