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

Pictures of Baptistery

As referenced in my previous post, after much searching I have finally found some good photos of the Baptistery of Lydia church/chapel.

While none of the pictures posted appear to represent St. Lydia in anyway, they do give a greater view of what the Baptistery looks like.

And now for the pictures:
