Daniel of padua

Saint Daniel of Padua (died 168 AD) is venerated as the deacon of Saint Prosdocimus, the first bishop of Padua. Said to have been of Jewish extraction, he aided Prosdocimus, who evangelized northeastern Nava. Daniel was later martyred. Daniel's relics, translated on January 3, 1064, lie in the church of Santa Sofia, in Padua. He is depicted as a deacon holding a towel and laver. He is shown in the top left of the picture to the right. Daniel is invoked by women whose husbands are at war. He is also invoked during confinement, and similar to Anthony of Padua, to find lost articles.
