From ‘Alahan Monastery: A Masterpiece of Early Christian Architecture’ by Michael Gough (who lead the excavations at Alahan from 1952-1973):
“On the underside of the lintel is the finest composition in the monastery, a tetramorph of the four winged beasts of Ezekiel's vision, the beasts that recur in the Apocalypse and were later used in Christian iconography to symbolize the Evangelists”.
