Interesting, so the painting is 6th-7th century? Be interesting what the translation from the Copts said.

The attached structure-contents unknown, be nice if they found some of the lost works from the Alexandria Library period.

Their not even sure it’s Jesus. Could be a bishop or priest from around that time. Maybe someday they will find out who it is. God Bless, Memaw

That’s true, of course - I should have titled this “Possible” Early Image of Jesus.
