Fragment of sarcophagus

4rth century AD

Fragment of the cover of a sarcophagus, decorated with the representation of the biblical episode of the three Hebrews in the oven of Babylonia. It is about three young people who refused to worship a statue idolized by King Nebuchadnezzar, who, for this reason, condemned them to the oven. But the three young men praised God and were not burned, which is why Nebuchadnezzar became the Hebrew religion.
