There is still much research to be done at Butrint. Here an art historian studies an early Christian mosaic in the Baptistery.
This Baptistery mosaic shows peacocks in a vine growing from a great vase. The birds represent paradise and immortality, and the vase and grapes, the Eucharist and the blood of Christ.
The Great Basilica was built in the 6th Century AD, at the same time as the Baptistery. The basilica was the bishop's church. Much of it was rebuilt in the Middle Ages.
