*Who Were the 3 Kings? - In the traditional Christmas story the Three Wise Men - also called the Three Kings of the East and the Magi - came to Bethlehem on Twelfth Night bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

A fascinating part of the Christmas story, the Three Kings were endlessly painted, from the second century - when they first appear in the catacomb of Santa Priscilla in Rome - to the present, and in one mosaic, in Ravenna, they are named: Melchior, Balthazar and Gaspar.

Melchior, the "smallest in stature," brought gold as his offering - including the treasure of Alexander the Great and "all the ornaments that the Queen of Saba [ShebaJ offered in Solomon's temple." Among Alexander's treasures was a golden apple and 30 pieces of money, gathered as tribute from all over the world. These, according to tradition, were the "30 pieces of silver" for which Christ at last was betrayed.

The second king, Balthazar, was from Saba where "there groweth incense more than in all the other places of the world; it drippeth out of certain trees in the manner of gum."

Gaspar, the third king, this account says, came from a mysterious kingdom called Tharsis: "In his isles myrrh groweth more plentifully than in any other place in the world. It groweth like ears of wheat..." According to John of Hildesheim, Gaspar was the "tallest of person and a black Ethiope without any doubt."
