Gift of Mrs. Vivienne L. Blanquie
DeYoung, 1979 during King Tutankhamun
Each band depicts a medallion flanked by two standing figures. The figures on the left of the upper band and the right of the lower one seem to be hunters or warriors. The other two on the right of the upper band and the lower left stand with one arm raised similar to the positions seen in dancing Dionysiac figures. The combination of figures from different scenes is common in Coptic textiles. The animal in the lower medallion is probably a hare and that in the upper may be a lion. All these details occur in numerous Coptic textiles.
