A cross-shaped baptismal font was also discovered on the eastern end of the hall. On three sides there are steps while at the southern arm of the cross there is a semicircular tub instead.
The spaces between the arms are decorated with mosaic knots of complex geometric design. One of them shows a bunch of grapes in the centre. A fish scale design mosaic with flower buds decorates the floor around three sides of the font.
