    Oldest Known Images of John and Andrew Uncovered in Rome

    This morning's Guardian is reporting the uncovering of images of John and Andrew dating back to the 4th century.

    Probing this s little further this is a follow up story to last year's discovery of an early image of St. Paul, also in the Saint Thekla Catacomb. The catacomb, which is curiously not listed at Wikipedia, is only accessible via a door in a Vatican office building.

    Anyway, these are thought to be the earliest images of the two apostles, which date back to the period when the collation of the New Testament was still in process.
