Transcription

Ἐπὶ τοῦ θεοσεβεστάτου καὶ ὁσιωτάτου ἡμῶν ἐπισκόπου Ἀναστασίου ἀνενεώθη τὸ πᾶν ἔργον τῆς ἁγιωτάτης ἐκκλησίας ὑπὲρ σωτηρίας καὶ μακροημερεύεσος τῶν καρποφορησάντων ἐψηφώθη μηνὶ Μαρτίου ἰνδικτιῶνος ιδʹ ψηφοθεσία Κλαυδιανοῦ καὶ Ἰμαννουελ ιεʹ μηνὸς Μαρτίου.

Translation

In the time of our most God-fearing and pious bishop Anastasios all of the most holy church was restored for the salvation and longevity of the benefactors, and it was paved in the month of March, indiction 14, by the mosaicists Claudian and Emmanuel (15 March?).

Notes
The date is likely 461 or 476 and the Anastasios refrenced could be Bishop Anastasios I of Jerusalem. Three coins found in the courtyard support this date of late 5th Century. The mosaic could also be dated to 536 CE and could be referring to Bishop Anastasios of Eleutheropolis.
