A Greek Orthodox Painting of St. Lydia
"On the sabbath we went outside the city gate along the river where we thought there would be a place of prayer. We sat and spoke with the women who had gathered there. One of them, a woman named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth, from the city of Thyatira, a worshiper of God, listened, and the Lord opened her heart to pay attention to what Paul was saying. After she and her household had been baptized, she offered us an invitation, 'If you consider me a believer in the Lord, come and stay at my home,' and she prevailed on us."
-Acts 16:13-15

" When they had come out of the prison, they went to Lydia's house where they saw and encouraged the brothers, and then they left."

-Acts 16:40

New Icons & Pictures

After much searching, I've found more icons of St. Lydia, and another view of her baptism site. Today will have several blog posts, as I have also found some pictures of the church dedicated to Lydia near her baptism site!

In the meantime, here is the new picture of the baptistery:
