The Greek inscription located at the threshold into the nave of the Byzantine Basilica.  Note also the colors and decorative elements of the remnants of the mosaic floor here in the narthex.

According to Jerome Murphy-O'Connor (p. 479) the inscription reads "O Lord, remember Zachary, and him who laid this floor."  From The Holy Land: An Oxford Archaeological Guide, 5th edition.  This is the best guide book to the Holy Land - Click Here to view.
