The House of the Mosaics - Eretria, Greece. , Greece

Fascinating household which was built in 370 b.C. and was inhabited for about a century. The Mosaic floors represent Niriida as Ippokampos and battles between Arimaspous and Grypes, Sfigon and Lefiton. It's a characteristic sample of classic and hellenistic architecture. The 1st century b.C. a burial yard was built and it got radically renovated in 1990 by the Swiss Archeological school.
