Stained Glass: Saint John the Evangelist(?)

A saint with a barrel and palm - maybe Saint John the Evangelist? Stained glass window in Merton College Chapel, dating from the end of the 13th century. These windows were donated by Henry de Mamesfield, who is shown kneeling in prayer to either side of a saint in each window. Founded in 1264, Merton College is the oldest college in Oxford.
