The House of Aiona is located in the Paphos Archaeological Park in the Paphos district.

Only one part of the house has been excavated until now. The arched reception room of the house diplays the most spectacular mosaic which included five paintings showing the new-born Dionysus , Lyda , Kykno , the beauty contest between Cassiopeia and the Nirides, Apollon and Marcia, and lastly the triumph of Dionysus.

The rich decoration and the unique presence of the mosaic show that there is a hidden meaning behind them.
