HAVE THE COPTS OF THE 7/8TH CENTURIES COME FACE TO FACE WITH ALIENS?!

Aliens

 

I think the above Coptic tapestry fragment is particularly cute and funny. It is kept at the Coptic Museum in Old Cairo (Inv. No. 1708). We don’t know where it comes from in Egypt but it is dated to the 7th/8th centuries. The museum’s caption reads: “a tapestry roundel with woollen and linen threads, decorated with two standing figures with haloes flanking a rod.” I would like to look at it as two aliens!
