Northwestern chapel

The chapel at the northwest corner (5 m x 3 m) is decorated with a series of stags, sheep and gazelles, which all face small pomegranate and apple trees.

There is a two-line inscription which reads: “At the time of the most holy Bishop John, this place was paved with mosaics through the zeal of John, the most pious monk.”
(From: Michele Piccirillo, page 106)
