Agia Zoni is typical of Orthodox churches built in the later medieval period, incorporating elements of regional Gothic architecture into their otherwise Byzantine forms. Note, for example, the pointed arch of the south door of Agia Zoni. Both churches may well stand on earlier foundations, though archaeological evidence confirming this has yet to be uncovered. It is very likely that these sites were abandoned or used for other purposes in Ottoman times as contemporary authors tell us that Christians were excluded from Famagusta during this period, the Greek Cathedral and the chapel of St Symeon being the only properties to remain in Greek hands.
