In this last post about the 3D reconstruction and digital restoration of the Early Christian basilica of Cim I am going to talk about the reconstruction of the building.
The reconstruction moved from the volt of the apsis that was slightly irregular as its diameter was 2,40 m while its length was 2,98 m. In coeval Balkanic churches we observed that the sloping of the roof was about 21°. This structure was fitting in two building layers (of about 1,50 m). Considering the starting point of the volt placed at about 3 m from the floor (two building layers), all the rest of the building was perfectly balanced in its dimensions.
The Basilica was formed by a single nave church flanked on the left side by the Baptistry, where the baptismal font was, and on the right side by two environments, identified as the diaconicon and the prothesis and used by the clergy to store their vestments and the sacral objects. The whole structure was preceded by a closed narthex that devotees accessed through a portal. Signs of the supporting columns of the portal were excavated on the archaeological site.
