The Early Basilica Church ruins in El-Ashmonein Archaeological Site located in Minia, Upper Egypt is situated with other historical ruins of Thoth temple, and Roman temples. That location was the center of an ancient town, in which the basilica building was built on previous structures and after the church collapse the remains partly were used as a source of limestone blocks. Current excavation efforts provided the fact that the church foundations were constructed using decorative Greek blocks and elements taken from Hellenistic buildings. The current church ruins include free-standing stone columns which are laser scanned by our team to provide digital documentation of this Archaeological Site.
