Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relic of a Franciscan St. Antonio Lucci, O.F.M.Conv.. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on typeset cedula label as Ex ossibus / B. Antonii Lucci (from the bone of the Blessed Anthony Lucci).  On the back, under a protective cap, the theca is secured with a seal of red Spanish wax bearing an imprint of a coat of arms of the Order of Friars Minor Conventual (the "Franciscans").

Blessed Antonio Lucci (†1752), was an Italian Roman Catholic professed member from the Order of Friars Minor Conventual (the "Franciscans") and served as the Bishop of Bovino from 1729 until his death. The beatification cause started on 5 December 1764 under Pope Clement XIII while he was later titled as Venerable on 13 June 1847 under Pope Pius IX. Pope John Paul II beatified Lucci on 18 June 1989 in Saint Peter's Square.
