Abstract :
New excavations at Bir Messaouda, a piece of open ground in the centre of modern Carthage, have uncovered a very substantial Christian transept basilica which dates to the 6th century AD. The structure bordered the Decumanus Maximus to the north and Cardines IX and X east to the west and east. The complex also comprised of a baptistery and crypt. The building appears to have been in use for much of the Byzantine period before falling into disuse in the later part of the 7th century AD.
