Dating material: 

Germer-Durand dated the complex to the second half of the sixth century (Mader 1918: 204) based on the inscription. Based on the word PERSO (ΠΕΡΣΩ), Philipp (1937: 14-15) claimed that the church’s foundation was connected with the Persian occupation and that monks were slaughtered by Persians on the site. He therefore dated the church to the first half of the seventh century CE.
