North Temenos House

The North Temenos House is situated directly north of the Temple of Aphrodite, a prime location. The main surviving elements of the house are two small courtyards surrounded by suites of rooms and a large, apsidal hall. The marble floor of the apsidal hall is well-preserved, and many fragments of its elaborate marble wall decoration were found during the excavations, including a number of high-quality figured pilaster capitals. Pottery finds show that the house remained in use at least until the sixth century AD.
