Colored Portrait of a Child

This portrait was found on the mummy of a little girl whose mother's name is Demos. There is a separate portrait of Demos in the collection of mummy portraits from Faiyum.

The child is portrayed with a round, sad face, short hair and brown eyes. Round the neckline of her dress there is a necklace of crescent-shaped pendants. These crescent-shaped ornaments were associated with fertility.

The style of the painting appears to indicate that this portrait was painted during the rule of the emperor Domitian (A.D. 81-96).
