Fayoemportretten zijn geschilderd op houten plankjes door middel van pigment en hete was (encaustiek) of in de tempera-techniek. Ze stellen de rijke inwoners uit de oase voor, die in de Grieks-Romeinse periode tot grote bloei kwam. De wijze van afbeeldingen (schuin van voren, met aanduiding van licht en schaduw), de haar- en baarddracht, en de kleding zijn kenmerkend voor de Grieks-Romeinse cultuur.
