Panel D3 - Nicholas appears to the robbers and commands them to return their loot
Description:
In a rather humorous episode, St Nicholas appears to the three robbers in their lair and orders them to return their ill gotten gains to the Jew, complaining that he is being beaten black and blue for their sins. In the usual conclusion to such stories, the Jewish moneylender is so impressed by the miracle that he converts and becomes a 'good Christian'.
