Cartonnage fragment: UC 45971

Part of a linen-based painted cartonnage foot-case, preserving at left parts of a rosette-and-banded border: beneath the position of the soles of the feet of the recumbent body are images of foreigners bound at the ankles, and distinguished by their pink (Greek?) and orange (Syrian?) skin, and, in the better preserved figure, by the beard.

date: Ptolemaic - Roman Period (about 200 BC - 100 AD)
