This chapter discusses the recognition of Marcus Simaika's work both at home and abroad. Among other accolades, Simaika was made an Honorary Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London, a Fellow of the British Society of Archaeologists, and a Member of the British Royal Geographic Society in 1917. In 1923, M. Georges Foucart, the Ministère de l'instruction publique et des cultes of France, presented to the library of the Coptic Museum all their publications on Coptic studies. Similar donations were made by the authorities of the British Museum. Furthermore, Simaika was invited to lecture at Cambridge University in 1924 on Coptic art and archaeology and at the University of Stockholm on Coptic art. On February 20, 1947, three years after Simaika's death, a ceremony was held at the Coptic Museum to inaugurate a new hall and to unveil the bust of Marcus Pasha Simaika.
