High quality and very rare Byzantine Weaving / textile, Coptic workshops of Egypt, ca. 5th.-7th. century AD.

A rarely seen piece on the market from a high point of the textile art during the Late Roman-Byzantine period of Egypt.

A multi-coloured rectangular fragment of a Tunic with a square with the portrait of an important male ruler of Christian figure, seen with his head twisted slightly to the left; squares around the portrait with what appear to be floral designs, top and bottom borders with symethric decoration. Interesting depiction that needs more research.
