Androcles.

I originally wrote this comic using "Christians" rather than "criminals", and Daniel instead of Androcles. It would have worked almost as well that way, but I think the story of Androcles is actually a closer match to what they're saying here. It was in fact my original intent, but I got the stories of Androcles and Daniel muddled in my head. There's also the fact that Daniel would be a serious anachronism, whereas Androcles is supposed to have actually interacted with Romans.
