Fayum (or Fayoum) mummy portrait of young woman by ggnyc, via Flickr

During the 1st to 3rd century AD in Egypt. The portraits were attached to burial mummies at the face, from which almost all have now been detached. In terms of artistic tradition, the images clearly derive more from Graeco-Roman traditions than Egyptian ones. The population of the Faiyum area was greatly enhanced by a wave of Greek immigrants during the Ptolemaic period, initially by veteran soldiers who settled in the area.
