Photographer's Note

The houses within the Archaeological Park of Paphos were luxury villas, but in 332 and 342 AD Paphos was hit by two strong earthquakes . The excavations revealed large and almost intact mosaics which are at the same time a work of art and a documentation of many aspects of life on Cyprus during the Roman Empire.
The houses are named after the subject of mosaics found there. In the main photo you can see the large mosaic in the house of Theseus.
