Description Anonymous 558 was condemned by Anonymi 1515 although he was innocent. Following Edgar 11's legislation, he was mutilated and lost both his hearing and his eyesight. He was led home by his friends (Anonymi 1516) and remained in this condition between 6 January and 25 April. Anonymi 1516 encouraged him to go to the tomb of Swithhun 5 which he did. He prayed for his hearing to be restored and he was found worthy to receive both his eyesight and his hearing.
