The complex is likely to have ingested a number of pre-existing buildings, and it is, for this reason, sometimes considered an insula more than a single unit. Some of the remarkable mosaics decorating the floors are still in place, other have been lifted and are now on display in museums. It also appears to be linked to the adjacent Temple of Hermes, Hall of the Orthostats and the Twin Temples (sometimes considered part of the House itself). Evidence suggests that it was already destroyed around the IV century AD.
