The Basilica of Justinian ? during the Byzantine period, this was the greatest churches in Sabratha. It is also the most important from an archaeological point of view. The exquisite mosaics from its nave and aisles are now in the safety of the Roman Museum. The Basilica was built in the 6th century AD using materials from other parts of the city.

The church has a narthex with six columns, three naves, a raised prestbytery, a pulpit and an altar. The apse is missing.
