dc.descriptionThe Christian baptistery at Djemila (late 4th / early 5th C.) is a round structure designed with an outer ambulatory rimming its circumference and a circular inner ambulatory that envelops the central square, canopied font. Thirty-six arched niches line the walls of the outer, barrel-vaulted ambulatory. These provided seats and vestry for the neophytes. The brick and mortar walls were sheathed in stucco, and the floor paved in a repeating geometric pattern of mosaic crosses. ca. June 1983en
