Why the woman's portrait?
- The mummy portrait in encaustic (ie pigments are in wax), Louvre collection, is from Antinoopolis (I have no idea why it also says Fayum, which is further north, and on the west bank, other than that a great quantity of such painted Greco-Roman portraits being found there); the info given in description states that its from the 2nd century, presumably as the sitter has a hairstyle 'in the manner of Sabina', wife of Hadrian. But yes, it does need that data added as a caption. Cheers, (Scott E Hill (talk) 02:37, 25 April 2010 (UTC))
- Even with the caption, it seems odd to illustrate an article on a city with an individual's portrait, unless maybe it was a particularly notable representative of the city. Also, the caption talks about the hairstyle, but uses an extremely tightly cropped version (another is available on Commons) in which we can't see the hairstyle.

Tradition vs History
The section 'Relevance to Christian History' offers no references in support at all and fails to meet even the most basic requirements for either history, or Wikipedia.
"...hundreds of thousands of Christians were tortured and killed in the third and fourth centuries..." - should not be claimed without supporting evidence.
