A 7th-Century Icon of Madonna and Child Above Altar in Pantheon

A 7th-century icon of the Madonna and Child above the altar in the Pantheon. This dates from when the temple was first converted to a Christian church, and is a rare surviving example of the icons that were common in Roman churches at that time.
