According to the Historia of Eusebius (263-339), Marino was a soldier descended
from a noble family; when nominated to be a centurion, he was denounced as
a Christian and executed. Asterio was a senator who, after witnessing Marino’s
martyrdom, shrouded his body in order to give him a Christian burial, a deed
which cost him his life.
For the identification of figures on the facade see Santiago Sebastián, Arte y
Humanismo (Madrid: Cátedra, 1978), p. 211.
Executed between 1527-1532. Originally there were four prophets, today
