Elene, lines 1104-1200

Judas prays, and fire rises up out of the ground from the place where the nails are buried.  The people praise God for this sign.  Judas Cyriacus picks up the nails and brings them to Elene.  Elene praises God and tries to determine what should be done with the nails.   A wise man tells her that she should have the nails made into the bridle for Constantine’s horse so that no one will be able to defeat him in battle.  Elene does this and sends the jeweled bridle made of the nails over the sea to Rome.
