HIPPOLYTUS STATUE. The Statue of Hippolytus shows the Christian theologian seated on a chair. He lived during the second and third centuries. On either side of this chair are inscriptions that date to 222 A.D. One inscription records Jesus’s conception on April 2, 2 B.C., which would place his birth close to December 25, nine months later.
