Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo

In Daniel 14 (in the Vulgate) the prophet Habakkuk has prepared food prepared for reapers in the field, but an angel tells him he must take it Daniel in Babylon. The angel takes Habakkuk by the hair, flies him to Babylon, and sets him atop the lions' den into which Daniel has been locked for six days.
