St. Augustine on the Walls
There are a number of other frescoes of other stories about Augustine as well, but we’ll save those so you will have something left to see when you visit San Gimignano yourself. We’ll leave you then, with the final picture of Augustine’s death in 430. By now he is the Bishop of Hippo, as you can see from the hat that he wears.
