Roman House

Roman house in Skala town

The Roman house in Skala was built between the 2nd and 4th century AD on the bank of a torrent, from where access to it was made by a wooden bridge. It consists of a courtyard, a storage area and four chambers that have mosaic floors with geometric themes. In addition, a symbolic representation of Envy survives in a chamber, which is personified as a male figure devoured by beasts.

In another chamber, a representation of Sacrifice is depicted, denoting the respect and religious worship of those depicted: two male figures stand on the right and left altar, while lower ones depict animals offered as sacrifice.
