The people of Myra were suffering under the burden of heavy taxes. They begged Bishop Nicholas to ask the emperor to relieve them of the high taxes which caused such hardship. Nicholas went to Constantine to plead the cause of his people. The emperor heard Nicholas' pleas and granted a large cut. Nicholas received a written copy of the order.

The vaulted underground chamber could have been a cistern; the hallucinogenic lupine seeds could have been converted to a dietary staple by boiling them in water; any prosperous household might have kept such clay images of Persephone.
