The church built in the temple of Isis yields a rare example, however fragmentary, of decoration in an urban church in late antique to early Islamic Egypt. The Virgin and Child surrounded by saints, and most likely angels, have been depicted on the northern pillar. Four saints and an unidentified person are represented on the southern pillar.
