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?
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus

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

Although I thought they'd already found a church.
