Basilica of Saint Stephen- Ancient Thera

The history of Ancient Thera continues into the early Byzantine period, and here, right after the temple of Artemidoros, we find a building that testifies to that. The two-aisled vaulted church of Saint Stephen (Agios Stefanos) was built on the ruins of an early Christian basilica, probably in the middle of the 6th century AD. The basilica was three aisled, with a double narthex (entrance area) and an arch in its middle aisle. After its destruction, probably by an earthquake, the two-aisled vaulted church that survives today was built.
