Byzantine church was built on the foundations of the 2nd century AD Nymphaeum while on its eastern side, the foundations of an early Byzantine building have been discovered, probably a house that was demolished in order to build the church.
Frescoes from the Church of Aghios Spyridon were reset in the walls of the restored narthex.
it was the first significant church of the middle Byzantine period in Athens, and marks the beginning of the so-called "Athenian type", successfully combining the simple four-pier with the cross-in-square forms.
