It was built at the end of the 5th century A.D. There are many appositions until the beginning of the 6th century A.D. The building is double storeyed.The bottom floor consist of a central room with an asymmetric arrangement of rooms leading off from either side of it.Walls made from rubblestone and lime mortar attracted attention with their ornamental brick work.Each room has mosaic floor.The easter staircase led to the second floor built on the bottom floor domes to the north and south,traces of the walls of the second storey,though minimal,can also be seen.There is no second floor above the central area.Like the first floor, the second floor has fine work mosaics decorated with bird and other animal motifs.Today the mosaics can be seen on the ground with collapsing the second floor.
