The geometric panel is situated between the nave and the eastern aisle. It is interrupted by a tabula ansata containing a Greek and Aramaic inscription. The tabula ansata consists of an inscriptions which is divided in two: the western half Greek and the eastern Aramaic. An ivy leaf remains in the northern ansa. The Greek inscription reads as follows: Severos disciple of the most illus- trious. Patriarchs completed (it). Blessing on him and on Ioullos the suppervisor. The Aramaic inscription reads as follows: יהי שלמה על כל מן דעבד מצותה בהדן אתרה קדישה ודעתיד מעבד מצותה תהי לה ברכתה אמן אמן סלה ולי אמן The panel depicts overlapping octagons composed of four lozenges surrounding a square. The lozenges are filled with small octagons. May peace be upon anyone who has offered charity in this holy place and anyone who will offer charity may he be blessed. Amen, Amen, Selah, and for myself Amen.
