It show's how early that particular style of church floor plan came into use, great find, it must have been beautiful in it's hey day, I wonder if
the mosaic or tyle floor is still intact in good conditon and if any glazed tile fresco are still there, it may be that as the water rose the basilica
was moved from this site to higher ground and there may be or have been a matching twin on one of the hill's nearby, the town which surrounded it
must also be under the lake and possible give the rate of subsidence or lake level rise the earlier town may be even further out with it's ancient
I wonder if it had an undercroft and if there are any finds to be made there.
