A very popular theme, legend relates that in Lybia a group of inhabitants, pagans who worshipped a Dragon that lived in the lake offered human sacrifices. The princess was to be the next offering, and as she was being led to the marsh, Saint George rode by, cried out in the name of Christ, and slew the Dragon.
