Holy Apostles Church in Athenian Agora

  

I added five new photos to the page on the Church of Holy Apostles in the Agora of Athens. Formally there were only two photos.

This is the oldest church (early 11th century) that remains in Athens which does not have early Christian basilica. Reason being that in the Early Christian period, the Athenian often reused the old temples as church, like Parthenon and Hephaisteion. The new churches were surely build, like the one in the Hadrian's Library, but any one of these is standing now.
