Discovered in 1962 by a farmer ploughing his field, these spectacular ruins have been acclaimed as some of the best examples of Roman floor mosaics discovered to date. The mosaics date from the third to the fifth centuries AD and can be seen in the archaeological park in five separate houses which would have made up a Roman noble's villa. They are named after the scenes they depict: the House of Dionysos focuses on the god of wine, while the House of Theseus shows the hero battling the Minotaur. A guide available at the ticket office has details on all five houses, the others being the Houses of Aion, Orpheus and the Four Seasons. Also nearby are the remains of the Saranta Kolones ('forty columns') castle, a modern-day lighthouse and the ancient agora (place of assembly) and odeon (theatre), the latter still used for the odd performance.
