This chapter examines the early Christian churches discovered at the Fayoum Oasis in Egypt between 1930 and 1933 by an Italian mission directed by Carlo Anti and later by Gilberto Bagnani. All the three churches at Tebtunis are provincial in character with a rather meagre articulation of the central naves. This chapter provides relevant photographs and the floor plan of the church made based on the visible features of the excavation.
