Church of Mary in Ephesus

From the Wikipedia:

The Church of Mary close to the harbor of Ephesus was the setting for the Third Ecumenical Council in 431, which resulted in the condemnation of Nestorius. A Second Council of Ephesus was held in 449, but its controversial acts were never approved by the Catholics. It came to be called the Robber Council of Ephesus or Robber Synod of Latrocinium by its opponents.

A note indicates:

The church of Mary (The Council Church). The 145 x 30 m large, three-aisled bishop’s church in the city was erected in the southern stoa of the Olympieion Quarter. The basilica became renowned as the site of the 3rd Ecumenical Council (Mary as Mother of God) in AD 431. The church was rebuilt numerous times in the late Byzantine period. At the latest in the 7th century, the seat of the bishop was transferred to St. John’s Basilica, but as a cemetery church the church of St. Mary continued to be used well into the Middle Ages.
