The Christian period in Egypt is referred to as the Coptic Period. The archaeological and historical definition of 'Coptic' is extremely imprecise since the term is often applied not only to the art and architecture of the Christian period, but also to the culture of the 3rd and 4th centuries AD (proto-Coptic), and the early medieval period (700-1200 AD).
One of the most interesting fact about the Coptic Period is the language and writing system. It is a combination of Greek letters with six further signs taken from the Demotic script. It is still employed in modern times in the liturgies and Biblical texts of the Coptic Church.
Under this category, you will find various silver crosses, cloth fragments (with illustrations and Coptic scripts), game pieces, fragments and more. These pieces combines the aesthetics of Egyptian art with traditional Christian motifs.
