Paphos...

... The House of Theseus / Mosaics

The Roman villas situated a stone’s throw from Pafos harbour, were found accidentally and have the most exquisite mosaics depicting scenes from Greek mythology. The house of Theseus is believed to have been the residence of the Roman Proconsul Sergius Paulus, who according to tradition converted to Christianity upon hearing the preachings of St. Paul. It is possible that St Paul visited this area in order to spread the word of God.

The House of Dionysos, the House of Theseus and the House of Aionas:
These were noblemen’s villas from the 3-5th century AD with marvellous mosaic floors considered to be the best in the Eastern Mediterranean. The scenes depicted are mainly from Greek mythology and are executed to perfection.
