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

It was built during the second half of the 2nd century A.D on the ancient ruins of older Hellenistic and Roman period buildings. The house was inhabited until the 7th century A.D and is considered to have been the house of a Roman proconsul, as it included over 100 rooms. Many rooms as well as the three galleries around the central patio include mosaic floors which belong to three different phases.

The most ancient mosaic is dated to the end of the 3rd century and displays Theseus fighting with the Minotaur in the labyrinth. This mosaic shows the alterations made to it possibly due to the earthquakes during the middle of the 4th century. At the end of the 4th century a mosaic floor presents Poseidon and Amfiiti.

Lastly, at the end of the 5th century a new mosaic was added to the main room of the mansion which shows the first bath of the new-born Achilles.
