The house of Dionysus. Late 2nd century CE.
Paphos, Archaeological Park.
Descending the steps and turning to the right, one can admire the floor of another rectangular room which is decorated with a polychrome geometric pattern. This consists of stars of eight lozenges separated by squares. The squares are filled with predominantly geometric motifs, but amongst them there are a few that are filled with objects such as a wreath, a pomegranate, a bunch of grapes, a branch of ivy and a spear, a peita and a double axe (the last three all together in one square).
