Oval glass-fronted reliquary theca housing first class ex ossibus (from the bone) relics of Saint Paulinusof Antioch, Martyr. The relics are affixed to a red silk background, surrounded by twisted silver wire ornamentation and identified on a fancy shaped cedula label as Ex Oss S. Paulini / M. i Ep. Luca (Of the bone of Saint Paulini, Martyr and Bishop of Lucca). On the back, under a protective cap with an image of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the theca is protected by a seal of red wax with a perfectly preserved imprint of a coat of arms of fr. Giulio Arrigoni O.F.M. Ref. (†), the Archbishop of Lucca. It is accompanied by the original matching authentics document issued and signed by Fr. Arrigoni in 1851.
