A Christian church located in the ancient city of Apollonia (Cyrenaica) built approximately in the fifth century A.D., probably on earlier Hellenistic foundations. The site was excavated in 1922 and shows a three-aisled nave with transept at the eastern end, and a single apse. Traces of the mosaic floor are still visible.
