Byzantine Church in Athrun
|Time zone||EET (UTC+2)|
Athrun (also spelled Lathrun, or Latrun) is a small town in northern Libya about 40 kilometres (25 miles) east of Cyrene. Its name comes from Greek "Ἐρυθρόν" (Erythron), neuter of "ἐρυθρός" (erythros) "red", due to the color of the local soil. Athrun was established during the rule of the Byzantine Empire in this area.
