Church, boat, fisherman

Mosaic of the intercolumnar space near the SS Lot and Procopius shelter's entrance door, underneath the walkway. It shows a church between a fisherman and a boatman transporting amphorae. The mosaic church with two towers has a gabled roof with red tiles. Steps lead to the main door, in which hangs a knotted curtain.
