Info from a website about this church -
... "Scattered around the walls of the Basilica are remarkable fragments of frescoes.
Subjects of these paintings include the Saviour, the Mystical Supper, the Most Holy Mother of
God, archangels, warrior saints, a stylite, and various other saints including Saint Paul the Apostle,
Saint Dioskourides and the Prophet Habakkuk. Additionally, there are a number of other frescoes
which depict bishops meeting with the Emperor in Holy Synod, perhaps the First Holy and
Ecumenical Synod of Nicaea [AD 325] which was attended by Saint Nicholas." 10-Jun-2011 15:02

What you say makes sense. Can't remember what led me to think it might be St. Paul,
but he visited there and there is an image of another designated saint to the side of him
which I didn't, for some reason, photograph. Online, I can't find identification for it though
they do identify St. Nicholas when they're sure.

Looks like St. Nicholas.
