Ancient Agora

Hello everyone. My wife and I visited Athens last month. We went to the Ancient Agora. I took a picture of my wife next to a cross at the Church of the Holy Apostles. I can't find any information on it. Does anyone know the history behind it? I've only found one picture of it online:

Thanks!

Wait, so are you interested in the history of the church itself as Alabastron posted or was there a specific cross like the one in your link that you want to know more about?

I would like to only know more about the cross in the link and its connection to the Church of the Holy Apostles. Thanks.

Kevin, is this the one in the video? (go to 6:46). If so, according to the narrator, it was added during a major renovation of the church that took place in 1882. No special history behind it apparently.
