A punch was thrown. A jaw was broken. The laughter stopped and the sacrifice continued.
The day's festivities were followed up by an execution, of course. There's no record of method or level of pain, but one would expect a little bit of warm-up would have taken place, if only to serve as a warning to others.
Since I have found no images of this particular saint named Zeno, I offer another famous broken jaw. Apparently, during this famous fight with Joe Frazier, Cassius Clay (as he was known then) kept repeating "I'm God." That's the sort of blasphemy that might get your jaw broken and your championship title taken away.
