This chapter aims to present a general review of the results of excavations conducted in the Byzantine/Arabic sector of the ancient site of Tebtunis located in the south of the Fayoum Oasis in Egypt. It examines the economic and religious function of this site through analysis of excavated archaeological materials and describes some of the Christian monuments found in Tebtunis. The analyses are based on the reports published by the excavators of the first Italian mission and the reports of the current joint Italian and French mission.
