Not a stylite; but on fire nevertheless

Anthony the Great. Loved pigs. And heading off, to spend long periods of time in the desert. And the patron saint of skin diseases. Thus St. Anthony’s Fire. Nothing to do with BBQ’ing the pork though.

This pig looks a little like the Essex Saddleback. But in that location in Egypt? Probably not.
