St. Augustine on the Walls
Arriving in Rome
While Monica was praying, Augustine was sailing on this boat away to Rome. Now the boat has arrived in Rome and Augustine is being met by someone at the harbor. This man is probably one of the Manichees, who were waiting for Augustine in Rome (5.10.18). Notice that Augustine is wearing a hat that has a white band with vertical stripes. Remember this hat; it will help you pick out Augustine in the next scenes.
