Tooth Of St. Apollonia
St. Apollonia was a deaconess in Alexandria. Her death was a cruel one happened in the year 249. The people in Alexandria believed that her teeth were the cure for all the people who are suffering from toothache and dental problems. She was killed by plucking out all her tooth and they had given her the extreme torture. After she died some merchants were cheating the people by selling duplicate tooth to them stating that, it was the tooth of St. Apollonia. All the people were fighting to buy the tooth from those merchants without knowing that it was a duplicate one. Later the King Henry VI ordered his workers to bring all the Apollonia’s tooth from the people. King was shocked when he saw thousands of teeth which were brought by his workers.
