It is a luxury building of the Roman period which belongs to the Hellenistic type of house, where the room develop around a courtyard which was the centre of the building. It seems to have been built at the end of the 2nd century A.C and was destroyed with the earthquakes in the beginning of the 4th century. 

From the 2000 square metres of the building, one fourth of it is decorated with floor mosaics which show themes of mythology, vintage, hunting etc. At the entrance of the house there is a floor made of sea shells which shows the mythical sea monster Skyla, and belongs to an earlier Hellenistic building.
