St Anastasia is portrayed wearing a light-coloured garment and a nimbus of light. Anastasia was a daughter of a Roman nobleman and was married to a heathen; after her husband’s death, she helped incarcerated Christians. For that, she was put into prison herself, and was burned later. She is regarded as the patron saint of prisoners. This is a very rare kind of plot.
