In the Karpas peninsula, 3.5 miles (5.5 km) east of Gialousa (Famagusta district) near the north coast. There is a late antique settlement 1 mile (1.5 km) to the southwest, at Hagia Trias, with an early 5th-century basilica that was abandoned in the late 8th century [Papageorgiou (1993) 49, n.69].

Description: A vaulted structure with a semi-circular apse, its barrel vault is carried by a tranverse arch on engaged piers. The west wall was subsequently demolished and a narthex with a drumless dome was added.

Dating: A date or at least a terminus ante quem in the late 11th / early 12th century is suggested by the style of the remaining fresco decoration [MKE 4, 54-55].

Modern repairs: The fresco decoration was consolidated [ARDA 1973, 16].
