Church of Agioi Asomatoi, Thiseio

Church of Agioi Asomatoi, Thiseio Church of Agioi Asomatoi, Thiseio
The church of Agioi Asomatoi is located at the district of Theission and more specifically at the end of the most commercial street of Athens, at Ermou street.

A characteristic example of an Athenian church of the 11th century, it has seen a lot of aesthetic interventions, as most of the churches in Athens. The church has the usual Byzantine masonry, while from the windows of the dome we can observe the characteristic brick work decoration which mimics the Arab alphabet (cufic elements). Fragments of three clay plaques with relief decoration, which were found in an excavation next to the church, were considered to belong to the church and were walled-in on its western side.
