  altar of old church
by sandysmith

The Church of the Panagia Tarsou was built during the Christian years in the "pronaos" (pre-temple) of the ancient temple. Little remains of this though and only the capital of this very old church can be seen, it was used as the Altar and on it are inscribed the Christian initials ICXP which mean "Jesus Christ".
