5th century AD Eastern Roman Byzantine Christian funerary mosaic of Crescentia from Tharbarka western Necropolis in the Roman province of Africa Proconsularis, present day Tunisia. The funerary portrait depicts a young girl, Crescentia, dressed in a dalmatic tunic with vertical stripes, pulled in at the waist by a belt , with a necklace around her neck. Today the dalmatic is a long wide-sleeved tunic, which still serves as a liturgical vestment in the Roman Catholic church. To the right side of Crescentia is a lit candle which symbolises eternal faith.
