Panel 21 - The fall of Patroclus?
The apocryphal Epistle of St Linus describes an incident when so many people squeezed into an upstairs room to hear Paul preaching that a boy called Patroclus, who was the Emperor's cup-bearer, fell from an open window and was killed. The boy was then revived by St Paul, prompting a number of conversions from among the witnesses.
