hatshepsut graffito

This crude drawing is thought to be a comment on the rumored relationship between the 15th century BCE female pharaoh Hatshepsut and her architect Senenmut. It was found in a cave above their greatest creation, the magnificent Djeser-Djeseru temple at Deir el-Bahri. Source: Centro Studi Archeologia Africana.

Alexamenos graffito - composite

One of the earliest depictions of the Crucifixion of Jesus, the famous Alexamenos graffito dates to the 2nd or 3rd century. It depicts a crucified human figure with a head of a donkey; a reverent Roman soldier is shown beneath it. The Greek caption identifies the scene as “Alexamenos worshiping his God”. Source: Wikimedia Commons (1, 2).
