The incorrectly performed miracles attributed to the old man according to the people of the town were:

1.  a "blind man who didn't recover his sight but grew three new teeth",

2.  a "paralytic who didn't get to walk but almost won the lottery", and

3.  a "leper whose sores sprouted sunflowers".

These "consolation miracles" were described in "mocking fun" and served to discredit the angel's authenticity and ruin his reputation.
