One of the few houses where it is known who the owners were, it displays how rich people lived and dwelled in ancient Delos. Some writings as well as two statues of the former owners are to be seen. Not to miss!

Cleopatra was no an uncommon name. That she lived here is documented on the statue. Visit here and the other columns that mark the homes of the wealthier resident.s
