Hesychius was a Christian who returned to Cyrene after the earthquake of 365 AD to lead the rebuilding of the Byzantine city. The ruins of his house are on a hill overlooking the Agora. There are two interesting Byzantine mosaics featuring angels and a Greek inscription asking God to protect the women and children of Cyrene.
