Arched niches church

       A medieval residential block was excavated at the city gates of the 4th-3rd centuries BC. Under the medieval houses, at a depth of two to three meters, lay the remains of earlier buildings. This block contained two-storied houses, the rooms of which were situated around enclosed courtyards. The walls of the houses were made of rubble fastened with mud. A system of gutters connected the houses with the wide streets.

The arched niches church

       In the 11th century or somewhat later two ancient blocks were united into one, a square was built in the middle of the new configuration, and a small church was erected in the middle of the square. Graves were fitted into the walls of the church, and arched niches were arranged above these graves to provide light into the building. The entrance to the church led from the square at the northern side of the building. A transverse street led to this area and connected the block with the downtown district. The arched niches church was demolished in the 13th or 14th century.
