Panel A4 - Martin reveals the unknown occupant of a shrine to be a long-dead robber
Description:
Near the city was an old grave which the locals had built into a shrine and venerated in the belief that the headless skeleton found there was an early Christian martyr. When Martin visits the shrine to investigate, he sees the spirit of the dead man and commands it to reveal its true identity. The ghost confesses that he was a common criminal who had been executed there. Martin dismisses the ghost and has the shrine destroyed to prevent further errors.
