IETHIRA; Khirbet Yattir - The Southern Church (Area C)

General description: 

A basilica (24 x 13 m) containing pavements in the aisles,nave,part of apse and atrium. The original floor, still visible at north corner, contained a design of birds, medallions and vines. Unlike the earlier phase, the later floor mosaic does not future any animal or human figures. This lack of figures riases questions. 


The nave has two phases, later phase is dated 631 C.E.
