The first photo shows all what is remaining of the baptistery of the first basilica that was built in the second half of the 4th century and had three rooms : one for the mass, the second to keep the relics of Sveti Mauro (Saint Maur) and the third for the catechumens. The Euphrasian basilica was later, in the 5th century, built mostly on the same place.

The second photo shows in the basement of the campanile the remains of the foundations of the first basilica, built in the 4th century. As the new basilica was mostly built over the ancient, there is not much remaining to see ! Though, some of the mosaics have been spared and are exposed separately.
