Pleiades

Possibly built in the first century AD as a typical house with rooms opening off an Ionic peristyle, it was later renewed and the layout rearranged. The name "Hesychios" (or "Hesychios the Libyarch") appears in a few of the house's mosaics. Some Christian iconography can also be found in the floor decorations.
