the apostle John the Evangelist (11H(JOHN))

For further depictions see also the four evangelists together. John is often depicted holding a chalice with a serpent in it, symbolic of the apocryphal story in which John blesses a cup of poisoned wine that he is given, and the poison rises in the form of a serpent.
