Looking back from the atrium to the basilica. The leaflet with explanations you et with your ticket has it that the basilica was in honour of "the young apostle and writer of the Bible", "whom the Jesus Christ loved most". It explains a tomb has been found which was held to be that of St. John, adding "Nevertheless, no ruins could be found at the tomb during excavations", ruins obviously being "remains" or "bones". This was only to be expected as the remains had been transferred to the Havariun (better known as the Church of the Holy Apostles) Church in Istanbul.
