Heavy linen warp with the design of stripes of conventional plant forms woven with dark blue, bright red, yellow, orange, and light green wool; very much worn; probably a sleeve band. “This piece was part of the dress of a woman, perhaps a Syrian. Found not far from San (Zoan); she was mummified and wrapped in her clothes and laid in a basket of rushes. Period probably about 300 A.D.” This border was sewed to a loose red woolen material.
