Vatican Reliquary theca with relics of Martyr Saint Lucia of Syracuse, Protectress in Epidemics

Round white-metal glass-fronted reliquary theca housing first-class ex ossibus  (of the bone) relics of Saint Lucia of Syracuse. The relic is affixed to a red silk ground and identified in Latin on a typeset cedula label as S. Luciae, V. Mart. (Saint Lucia, Virgin & Martyr).  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 Monsignor Ugo Poletti (†1997), Cardinal Vicar General of Rome (1973–1991).

She is a patron of the blind; martyrs; Perugia, Italy; Mtarfa, Malta; epidemics; salesmen, Syracuse, Italy, throat infections, and writers.
