St. Atanas Cape is a seaside resort center, south of the big city of Varna, Bulgarira. Here is being studied an early Christian complex with a basilica. In the beginning of this archaeological season was decorated a narthex with wall-paintings and inscriptions. Among the larger ones there is a partly preserved image of a saint (perhaps – Jesus Christ). There are also two fragments with partly damaged inscriptions with names in Latin: MARI[A] and H?E[S]US. For the time being these are the earliest inscriptions containing the names of Holy Virgin Mary and Jesus Chris. The project "ST. ATANAS CAPE - the birth of Byzantine Christian Art" focuses on the earliest ages of Byzantine Empire (the 5th and 6th century A.D.) and the Christian architecture and art in one of the city centres located very close to the Byzantine capital - Constantinople.
