Notes The qualities of construction attested in the archeological remains of the impressive and well decorated church now named “Basilica of Quarter sand” in Tyre (formerly known under the name “Basilica of the Quarter Hajj Qaafarani”), have raised debates for the identification of this church with the cathedral mentioned by Eusebius of Caesarea in the famous panegyric included in his Ecclesiastical History (Book 10, Chap. 4), and delivered in 313-314 under the aegis of bishop Paulinus of Tyre. But recent epigraphic and topographic studies, C14 analysis and other archaeological discoveries, confronted with Eusebius’ panegyric, give us data in order not to identify Paulinus’s cathedral with the remains of “Basilica of Quarter Sand”; and, in contrary, to propose the identification of the latter, which seemingly had martyrial and funerary functions, with the Saint Mary of Swamp mentioned in the Acts of the Synod held under the aegis of Epiphanius of Tyre on September 16th of 518.
