The excavation was undertaken and underwritten by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Baylor University (Texas), Brigham Young University (Utah) and the University of Toronto (Canada). Additional funding was provided by the National Geographic Society, the Loeb Classical Library Foundation, the International Catacomb Society, the Foundation for Biblical Archaeology (S.
