This is a plan of the Peristyle House with Church from a sign at the site of Laodicea. North is to the top of the image.
The house was built around an almost square (53 x 56 feet) Peristyle Courtyard that was open to the sky in the center and surrounded on all four sides by covered porticos.
The "Peristyle House with Church" is located south of the Large/North Theater. It seems to have been constructed in the 3rd-century AD and was destroyed in an earthquake during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Focas (AD 602-610).
