Basilica of San Pancrazio. In a side chapel are found depictions of St. Pancras and his uncle Dionysius. According to the "passio" (the story of his martyrdom), Pancras, an orphan, had come to Rome from Phrygia together with his uncle Dionysus. Both converted to Christianity and Dionysus immediately fell victim to Diocletian's persecution. Pancras soon suffered the same fate.
