A large building complex located on the western hill of Apollonia, probably built between the fifth and sixth centuries A.D. Its position and size, the presence of a chapel with a reliquary, and some public rooms led Goodchild to identify it as the residence of the Dux.

architectural complex


The architectural complex seems to be somehow divided into three, entangled, areas. Kenrick 2013 calls the whole unit "Palace of the Dux". Stucchi 1975 uses that name only to refer to the larger, western part, while the middle one is called "Casa della Torretta Semicircolare" and the eastern part "Casa del Cortile Lastricato". Christian Monuments 2003 only speaks about the main unit and the one immediately next to it (what Stucchi calls "Casa della Torretta Semicircolare") and refers to both of them together as the "Palace of the Dux" (the eastern building is not included in the analysis).
