    If I am not mistaken, this is one of the frescoes in the crypt of the church of Santi Apostoli, where the relics of St. James and St. Philip are found. They are inspired by the frescoes in the Catacombs of St. Domitilla, so they are not ancient, but were painted in the 1870s. The inscription says that the relics of the martyr Eutropius are within; there were other relics that were brought here from the catacombs in the 9th century, but it’s not certain whether this inscription is correct and these relics are actually within, or whether it’s just something that was reproduced…

    I could be wrong on this; I looked through all my photos and notes and can’t find this one, I’m just going from memory…perhaps The Papal Count can correct me if I’m mistaken?
