St Domitilla

St Domitilla


Icon of St Domitilla.

Flavia Domitilla was a granddaughter of Vespasian and a neice of Titus and Domitian.  She married her cousin, Titus Flavius Clemens, a nephew of Vespasian.

Eusebius quotes an earlier writer: "Brutius writes that there were very many Christian martyrs under Domitian, among whom were Flavia Domitilla, niece (on his sister's side) of Flavius Clemens the consul; she was exiled to the island of Pontia, because she bore witness that she was a Christian."

This is part of the series of traditional and Orthodox saints, which derives from a range of sources, including manuscripts, other icons and mosaics. Some icons include 24 carat gold highlights.

Domitilla is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished. 

This is one of a series of traditional and orthodox saints; see my gallery for other images.

The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").
