Short Description Ancient church of the early 14th century, at the eastern end of the wall, where Roman inscriptions were found, a fact which indicates that there was an earlier pagan temple that was converted into a Christian church. George Chatzikiriakou, who visited the Drama in the early 20th century, states: "In Drama there is the Byzantine chapel of the Archangels, meager and without artistic style, but retaining old icons worthy of attention in the style of Byzantine hagiography".
