The church of Agia Sofia in Karpathos, Dodecanese: The site of the ancient city of Arkesia, now known as Arkassa, presents the ruins of a Christian Basilica that dates back to the 5th and 6th century A.D. and is dedicated to Agia Anastasia. On this site it is built the church of Agia Sofia. The byzantine church consists of three large basilicas built one over another and separated by mosaic floors marking the site clearly.
