Sozomenus, Historia Ecclesiastica V,15 (5th cent. A.D.)
My grand-father was born in a pagan (Hellenic) family, however he, with all his house and together with those of Alaphion's descent, was the first to become Christian in Bethelia, a village of the Gazan region. This was a village with many inhabitants and had some (pagan) temples, which were deemed venerable by the natives for their antiquity or for their noble structure. The most important was the Pantheon, built upon an artificial hill like a fortress, and visible from every place in the village.
