Ancient Coptic Egyptian Artifacts & Textiles
3rd - 5th century AD

All my Egyptian artifacts were legally exported from Egypt prior to the 1970 UNESCO treaty, and subsequent international trade laws regarding antiquities. The items are from old American and European collections and auctions.



Coptic Egypt, c. 480 - 650 AD. Terracotta souvenir pilgrim flask. Depicts Saint Menas on one side, flanked by camels, his arms outstretched in blessing. Above each arm is a quincunx, representing a cross; all within a beaded circular border. Measures 3 7/8" (10.1 cm) tall. Missing most of one handle, otherwise intact! ref: Bailey, Ptolemaic and Roman Terracottas from Egypt, p. 118, no 3415. Small flasks were probably produced at the pilgrimage center of Abu Mena, south-west of Alexandria, to sell to the devout as a souvenir of a visit. They have been deduced to have contained holy water or oil from the shrine. Ex old English collection. #1210184x2: $450
