Gold Plated Lithography with Saint Glykeria

Saint Glykeria was born in Traianoupolis and from an early age she embraced Christianity. When the ruler of the region learned that the Saint was trying to spread her beliefs, he called her to an apology. However, the girl with incredible courage not only did not deny that she was a Christian, but proudly spoke of the one and only God. The ruler became enraged and asked her to sacrifice to the idols something she refused. Instead she prayed to God and miraculously the statue of Zeus in front of her was torn to pieces. The pagans tried to stone her, but the stones did not touch her. The torture continued and finally the ruler ordered her thrown to the wild beasts, resulting in her death.
