Roman house near the sanctuary.

1st century CE.

Kouklia (Paliapaphos), Temple of Aphrodite

About 40 m west of Sanctuary II (to the left of the road) the remains of a large Roman peristyle house were excavated on site KC. Built in the first century and reconstructed in the Late Roman period, its rooms are arranged round a colonnaded atrium. The large open impluvium in the centre is covered with a plain mosaic; fragments of mosaic pavements with geometric patterns are preserved in the peristyle and in ad¬jacent rooms.
