Augustine, the 4th-century Church Father, is shown here as bishop of the Roman city of Hippo Regius (now Annaba, Algeria). He holds the walled city symbolically in his right hand. Rays of light and an arrow emanate from an angel, an allusion to the rewards accorded to the city as the centre of early Christendom under the bishop.
