A church which dates to the early Fourth Century has been dug up by archaeologists in Leodicea, Turkey.

From the article:

The head of expedition, Celal Simsek thinks that the church was built in AD 313 after the edict of Milan.

IIRC when I visited Turkey a couple years ago Laodicea was a Tell. Good to know they're developing the site.

Assuming I'm not confusing it with another site. :D

Leodicea

That named after Pope Leo?
"I, Lucian, wrote this, I who am skilled in what is old and foolish; For what men think wise is foolish. So then nothing that the mind of man can conceive is certain; What you admire, seems ridiculous to others." - St. Lucian of Antioch

I was mistaken on the site. It isn't a tell.

Although I thought they'd already found a church.
