Regardless, the temple was eventually devoted to neither – it was turned into a Byzantine church and then the Muslims took over and converted it into a mosque. Later, under Norman rule, it was turned back into a church. Today the building is in ruins, but its imposing size is still evident - 58 x 24 m. It occupies a large part of Piazza Pancali. The dedication inscription is on the top step of the base. Templul a fost transformat în biserică bizantină şi apoi în moschee. Mai târziu, sub stăpânirea normandă, a devenit din nou biserică. Ruinele rămase până azi stau mărturie pentu măreţia de odinioară: 58x24 metri.
