Fragment of a woolen textile from the Kapati type

Description

Fragment of a woolen textile woven in the traditional Kapati style, one of the distinguished styles Egypt has known during the Christian period. The Kapati was named after the Copts of Egypt; and it was said that Al-Mukawkas, the Governor of Egypt, offered Kapati cloths to the Prophet Muhammed.
Two squares separated by festoons, from which hang geometric motifs, occupy the center of the fragment. The center of the fragment is occupied by a representation of a dancing man surrounded by geometric motifs. The fragment dates back to the period which extends from the mid-third century to the mid-fourth century CE when pagan themes were common.
