Antony: I never knew that Mar Aproth was based out of Diamper — it’s very interesting. Is this from Niranam Chronicles or is there another source that mentions this?
There’s another theory that the old (now nonexistent) Church of Kollam contained the tombs of Mar Sabor and Mar Aproth as well, right?
Also, regarding the placement of the heads … aren’t all Christians buried with the head in the west, facing east? Or do bishops and priests have a different arrangement?
It would be interesting to learn what was dug up back in 1929. Just bones, or would there have been artifacts as well? Does anyone have connections with the Church at Diamper, who could perhaps inquire?
