Description

Description

Our bold necklace recalls a Coptic example in The Met collection (A.D. 500700), which is thought to have been found in Egypt near a Christian church that is no longer standing.

The lost church, sited near Thebes on the west bank of the Nile opposite modern Luxor, was dedicated to the warrior saint Theodore Stratelates. Rock crystal was a favored material for religious items; this pendant may have belonged to a ranking prelate at the church.

The church building itself was built on the grounds of Medinet Habu, the mortuary temple of the pharaoh Ramesses III from the early 12th century B.C.
