A column, believed to be part of a pre-Christian church, built in the area where the church of Ayia Thekla stands in Sotira village, in the Famagusta district, was brought to light by a bulldozer digging a ditch during restoration work at the church.

Father Georgios Ioannou said that as soon as the column was uncovered, the officer responsible for the excavations at the Antiquities Department was notified.
He said the Antiquities Department assured them it would begin excavations around the church.(CNA)
