Near the south coast, 1.5 mile (2.5 km) south of Kalavasos (Limassol district) in a partly excavated late antique village on the east bank of the Vasilikos [see Papacostas (1999a), vol. 1, 36-37].

Description: The single-aisled vaulted (?) structure was built over the bema of a late antique three-aisled basilica incorporating its opus sectile floor and the apse with wall mosaic [Rautman and McClellan (1991) 16-17].

Dating: A mid-7th century date is suggested by the history of the site [ARDA 1991, 60-61].

Later additions / alterations: There is evidence of occupation on the site into the 8th century before its abandonment [Rautman and McClellan (1991) 16-17; McClellan et al. (1993); BCH 116 (1992) 812-13].

Modern repairs: The site was excavated in 1990-91 [ARDA 1991, 60-61; BCH 116 (1992) 812-13].

Plan / section: Rautman and McClellan (1991) 16 [showing the excavated southeast part and the conjectural plan of the late antique basilica; the later chapel is not shown].
