Antique Lithography with Saint Eustathios

Saint Eustathios was an officer in Rome and is said to have embraced Christianity after a miracle he witnessed. According to tradition, he once hunted a deer, which had a cross on its horns, while he heard a voice calling him to follow the One and Only God. Shortly afterwards he was baptized a Christian by the name of Eustathios. His wife Theopistis was baptized with him, as well as their two children Agapios and Theopistos. However, when the Emperor learned that he had embraced Christianity, he exiled him and his entire family. But he had to bring him back some time later to help him in the wars he waged. However, the successor of the emperor, demanded that Eustathius sacrifice to the idols, something that Saint Eustathios vigorously refused. Thus began the torture of him and his family. Eventually, they all died in a bronze incandescent ox.
