New Christian Archaeological Find in Jerusalem

The story is here:

Byzantine Prayer Box Found in Jerusalem Dig

Miniature box adorned with cross dates from 6-7 century CE. Contained two icons surrounded by gold leaf.

Archaeologists in Jerusalem discovered a miniature Christian prayer box that dates back to the sixth or seventh century CE.

The box was found at the "Givati parking lot" dig in Ir David...The box contained two icon paintings surrounded by gold leaf and was probably a personal prayer object...and is made from the bone of a large animal – cattle, a camel or a horse.

...One painting inside the box depicts a bearded man with dark hair, wearing what appears to be a white tunic. The other painting seems to show a female figure dressed in blue...

Now the Muslims have not only the Jews to compete against for a narrative history of this land but also the Christians.
