      Hi Dan,

      Seems that the alleged image that the Edessian King used for healing was from the tradition of Veronica who allegedly wiped the face of Jesus on the Via Dolorosa. This was written in the 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia. This is an important tradition in the Catholic Church. Eusubius wrote about it and associated Berenike/Veronica as a friend of Martha of Bethany and apparently was the woman healed of blood flowage (Matt 9:20). The name "Berenike" is first written in the "Acts of Pilate".
