Saint Panteleimon


Description Provenance Credit
Description Panteleimon, a physician who became a saint through his great charity for the poor, miracles, and martyrdom, is shown here with a lancet in his right hand. This tile is one among three in the Walters Art Museum that have the same size and contain identical busts of male saints: the other two depict Saint Basil (inv. 48.2086.17) and Saint Arethas (inv. 48.2086.2). The series probably formed a frieze on a church wall or altar screen.
Provenance Nikos Avgheris, Istanbul, ca. 1950, by purchase; Robert E. Hecht, Ruxton, Maryland, 1956, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1956, by purchase.
Credit Partial museum purchase with funds provided by the S. & A.P. Fund, 1956 and partial gift of Mr. Robert E. Hecht, Jr., 1957
