A sign about something interesting discovered in the church foundations

Above one of the crypts was this sign about something interesting discovered in the church foundations. Epigraphy is the study and interpretation of ancient scriptures. Now I do not recall why I photographed only the sign and not the exhibit which goes with it, but I could not find any picture I'd taken to go with this sign. Sorry about that. This is in the Church of Kish, which is the oldest Albanian church in the Causians, surprising in Azerbaijan, which is largely a Moslem country. There are several Christian Albanians still in resident in Azerbaijan though, and even Armenians, the bitter territorial dispute between Armenia and Azerbaijan notwithstanding. Detailed notes about the Church of Kish appeared in previous captions earlier in this album. (Sheki, Azerbaijan, Sept. 2017)
