This time a portrait painting from the 4th century-- a
fabulous archaeological find.
The portrait itself is rare and the earliest found of
a man that was called Paul, an evangelical missionary
for the Christian movement.

...and rare, also, the photograph of the painting
because the rights to take a photo of such are
probably exclusive and expensive. Plus, museums don't like
all those flash bulbs snapping at the historic treasure,
fading it out.
