KOS WORTH SEEING COMPLEX OF EARLY CRISTIAN BACILICAS OF ST. STEPHEN

COMPLEX OF EARLY CRISTIAN BACILICAS OF ST. STEPHEN
Southern Basilica: It is a three - aisled basilica with colonnades, a semi - circular apse in the east and a rectangular narthex on the west. A marble chancel, whose only remmant is the stylobate, used to separate the central aisle from the apse. The two entrances of the narthex lead westwards to an atrium which is on a lower level, giving access to two large stairs. Along the southern side of the basilica, there are some annexes, of which the one with apse was probably the sacristy. The basilica is richly decorated with mosaics and sculptures.

Northern Basilica: Smaller than the southern, it is also a three aisled basilica with columns and pillars. The eastern part is formed by an inscribed apse, while parts of the marble synthronon and the chancel s stybobate still remain. On the west, there is a rectangular narthex. Eastwards, there is a rectangular baptismal font, serving both churches.

The two Basilicas belong to the 5th - 6th century, the atrium of the soulh, being posterior.
