Seller: archaeus91 (245) 100%, Location: Staten Island, New York, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 253293459460 Huge 12 by 6 inch( length of the clavi) tunic collar decoration probably sewn and worn before Romulus Agustulus was deposed by Odovacer in 476 !!! Fine natural red and green tabby weaved ornament for a late antique tunic buried more than 1500 years ago with the owner!!!! The upper parts of the 2 clavi are preserved with fish motifs. Most Coptic textiles on the market are from the early middle ages when the decoration was as non classical as you can be. Few sellers even make this distinction when selling. One rule to remember is that if the motifs depicted are not geometric in nature and naturalistic and if they include amphorae cups bowls, bacchic scenes, they are from late antiquity before the Arabic invasions or the Sassanid occupation. Authenticity is irrelevant given that aging textiles and replicating them are nearly impossible. No article on the web exists on fake Coptic textiles as they do on most other types of antiquities. DONT buy feience figures DO buy Coptic textiles this holiday season. Material: Linen
