From Byzantine Church in Gymnasium

THE BYZANTINE
CHURCH
SOUTH OF GYMNASIUM
THE plan only was recovered, the superstructure being
entirely destroyed. The mosaic pavement of marble
cubes was very similar in character to that in the Gym-
nasium. In front of the apse was an elaborate design (Page

below).
