    R.VIII Sant Eustachio

    The Roman centurion Placido saw a deer with a cross between its antlers (the district’s coat of arms) while hunting, converted to Christianity, and was baptized Eustachio. He was martyred by being burnt in a bronze bull after miraculously escaping the lions. Originally called “S. Eustachio and Vigna di Tedemario” (after a Roman who owned land at the Circo Flaminio) this neighborhood’s name is now shortened.

    The Chiesa di S. Eustachio (Church of S. Eustachio) was, according to tradition, founded on the site of S. Eustacion’s martyrdom. The deer-with-cross symbol appears on the tympanum of the church. It seems to date to 795, and has undergone several reconstructions, one in 1196, and another in 1705.
