Sarcophages Chretiens de la Gaule

The parallel between the three youths and the three magi is made sharper in a fourth-century sarcophagus relief (shown here, compare with photos of frescoes from the Catacomb of Marcus and Marcellianus in Rome) from St. Gilles, in Arles, France. Here, three eastern men turn away from a Persian official standing beside an idol and point toward the Star of Bethlehem.
