The church was dated to the reign of Emperor Theodosius II, of the 5th Century AD.
A Byzantine church discovered on the Gaza Strip in 1997 has reopened after a three-year restoration project. The site features numerous floor mosaics that date to the 5th century, which can now be seen in a video with a 360-degree view.
According to a report from Greek City Times, the ruin was discovered during a routine repaving of Salah al-Din Regional Street in the Gaza Strip. The church features the Byzantine architecture associated with ancient Basilicas. The site includes three buildings which contain the floor mosaics: a church, a chapel, and a baptistery.
