A view, looking west, at the West Hall of the Perisyle House with Church.

Notice the raised apse at the west end of the room, as well as the cut-stone floor and meager remnants of marble wall paneling.  The entrances to two of the four side-rooms are visible in the walls on each side of the room—just this side of the apse.

Because of its size and beauty, the excavator believes that this was the living area and living/reception area of the leading individuals of the household.

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 the earthquake during the reign of the Byzantine Emperor Focas (AD 602-610).
