Medinet Habu, ruins of Coptic church in palace (Roberts, 1838)

Painting of the inner Palace courtyard at Medinet Habu (Roberts, 1838-1840).

This scene, painted by David Roberts in 1837-8, shows the remains of the Coptic church in the inner or second couryard of the Palace at Medinet Habu. This early Christian church was destroyed at some unknown time in the past, possibly not long before the image was painted.
