Matthias (Hebrew transliteration Mattityahu) (d. 80), according to the Acts of the Apostles, was the apostle chosen by the remaining eleven apostles to replace Judas Iscariot following Judas’ betrayal of Jesus and his suicide.
Matthias have many nice images recorded.
I found him only because I read my Runic Staff, and celebrate with a cup of red wine, here is to you Matthias ! Guide me to be a better man, if you can.
