The church of Hagios Polyeuktos in Constantinople, built under the patronage of Anicia Juliana, has been excavated.  Many relief carvings and a lengthy inscription were found (the translation of the epigram is formated as a paragraph beneath the verses in Greek). Read more about Anicia Juliana and the dedication of the manuscript, the Vienna Dioscurides, to her here.
